Show Review: Faster by Mark Fast Spring 2012 Presentation
By The Fashion Bomb Staff


Last night, I attended Mark Fast‘s Spring 2012 presentation in which the designer served up his signature slinky knits in sherbet hues we long for during spring. Fast presented in a spacious white room, clinical save for the neon signs and berry toned lighting. Models clomped out to a moving turntable at the end of the runway while guests sipped lemonade.

Skirt hems are punctuated by asymmetrical cuts and fringe. Strategically placed holes and mesh panels mimic the modern body ideal, creating (or accentuating) a curvaceous silhouette for the girl Fast imagined for this collection. Sleek bodysuits add another dimension of sex appeal. Hole-y knee socks bring a kind of false innocence to the decidedly cheeky looks, many of which could easily double as barely there beach cover ups.

Models stood intently stoic with slick hair and makeup in more saturated versions of the cotton candy shades they sported. As evidenced by Richard Chai, purple and blue lipstick might prove to be big this spring.

Rose-colored lenses emboldened coral peices, which happened to be the brightest hues in this collection.

Overall, the collection lives up to Faster’s standard of “luxury basics.” While these outfits will certainly be difficult for most women to wear, there is something I find rather appealing about the floor-length mesh paneled gowns.

What do you think? Could you see yourself rocking any of these looks?

    i like his fashions but he can’t keep doing this same look forever. also, where would one wear this? i travel, i go alot of places and see alot of people and i don’t see where any of these outfit would be appropriate for me to where anywhere. i can only see this on a celebrity as a costume.

  2. michelebeezit says:

    ITA with crystal. He has great technique, but he’s narrowing his customer margin to not only women with bodies good enough to wear these looks but also daring women, lol

  3. Ms. One says:

    I concur with the above two…..nothing else to be said.

  4. Ama says:

    This has Ciara and Nicki Minaj written all over it. They will be his best customers!

  5. Nali says:

    i see rhianna in one of these.. bet me!

  6. sun.kissed says:

    I like some of the dresses, but like the others said–Who’s buying this? The hooker-ish dresses look very similar to some I see hanging in the beauty supply store window…

  7. krystel says:

    clearly he doesn’t design for the “everyday girl”..and i also agree with the first comment.

  8. Englishvers says:

    Good heavens, very daring indeed and so unsuitable for daily life.
    But very New York Fashion Week;-)

  9. i guess he is over showing his clothes on thin/normal weight ranged models! I remember he did that at one of his shows and ppl left and left all kinds of comments to him for using a size 10/12 model. I wish he would have kept it up and pushed more bounderies or something, but non of this seems to be ready to wear. I couldn’t rock it even if i was tiny enough to do so.

    I think Mark fast’s dresses are mainley for photo-shoots and video’s. I really don’t see the every-day woman wearing any of these looks!
