Courageously leaping away from the mainstream, Mark Fast featured three plus-sized models in his Fall 2010 runway show. Sticking to his convictions, Fast lost his show stylist over the inclusion of plus sized models and will surely be the center of a media frenzy where he may find himself accused of stirring up self-publicity. The cult leader of skinny, cobwebbed knit dresses said he was inspired by Erin Brockovich and 20’s Egyptian silent-movie epics which would account for the feathery fringed skirt on a scoop neck dress and the incendiary girdle and bra in cinnamon. This season will surely find Fast in the spotlight; if not for his plus sized preference then most definitely for his unique techniques on knitwear.
