It seems every high street store is getting a bit of designer-collaboration action these days, from Roksanda Ilincic for Whistles, Sonia Rykiel (and Jimmy Choo) for H&M, Yasmin Le Bon for Wallis and now Mark Fast for Topshop (following in the hugely successful Kate Moss' footsteps).
The British high-street is awash with top designer lines at (relatively) affordable prices and we love it, but when we heard Mark Fast would be bringing his amazing design talents to high street giant Topshop, we got very excited.
The deal between the two apparently closed before Mark showcased his first S/S 2010 line at London Fashion Week (which caused a bit of a stir as he chose to use slightly larger models on the catwalk).
Mark's unusual method of using size 12 models on the runway ruffled a few feathers during LFW, however it seems Topshop were already impressed with the winner of the NEWGEN scheme, which gave Mark the funding to produce his first line.
It seems apt then, that the high-street store who sponsors NEWGEN should wish to collaborate with Mark for a new collection.
Anyway, we simply cannot wait for his signature skintight, see-through knits to be available to buy (with some saving) and his latest showcase proved all body types can pull them off.
