The Canadians in London - LFW Preview

Dimitri Chiparus sculptures; the inspiration for Mark Fast's FW10/11 show

3 simple questions for Mark Fast:

What is the inspiration for this season?
The sculptures of Dimitri Chiparus.

On being Canadian: proud of it?
Yes, yes!
Mark even has a Canadian PR team on top of is UK agency which handles all other requests (Thanks Tatiana for your help on this one!)

And does he keep int touch the Canadian designers in London (Erdem, Todd Lynn and Jean-Pierre Braganza)?
Friendly with all of them.

Todd Lynn FW10/11 Live Stream

I have been saying that if last runway season was the Twitter revolution then this season is the Live Stream one. A great number of shows in NYFW have already been streamed live, most notoriously Alexander Wang appearing on Times Square. Todd Lynn becomes part of the social media trend by having his Live Video Stream on the 21st of Sunday at 2:15 pm. In Canada it means you have to be up at 8:15am!

Erdem FW10/11 invitation

It's looking 70s romantic, if the image on invite printed by Smythson is any indication. And of course let's not forget that Erdem was named one of London's hot ticket this season by the Telegraph.
