LFW Day 2: Mark Fast
Location: University of Westminster
Joanne Black style: Martin Margiela A/W 09 dress; Sergio rossi S/S 09 edgy ankle sandals; Patrizia Pepe leather jacket A/W 08 and a Lanvin S/S 09 bag.
The collection: Knitwear has never looked so good. This collection, themed around cinema (in particular the silent films of the 1920s) and inspired by Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich, focused on telling the story of courageous women in society. There was certainly something very powerful about his short sexy knit dresses – with Swarovski embellishments. I also love the way he teamed each of his dresses with Christian Louboutin shoes – which the designer had created especially for the show.
The wish list: Fast’s figure-hugging black and white print dress with a fantastic geometric shape jutting out from the shoulder was fantastic.
The style: I loved the fact it was 9.30am and girls were dressed up ready for a night on the town – in short dresses and sexy statement ankle boots. My highlight was spotting Christian Louboutin in the front row, fanning himself with a leaflet.
