In a season where knit dresses have already proven to be such a mainstay, all eyes were on Mark Fast--the man who started it all. And as expected, he fully bucked the trend of preppy collared pastel knits, instead presenting a goth-raver collection inspired by the 1995 party scene.
Black-lipped, scowling models stomped out in thick-soled, towering platform creepers, sporting leather chokers and Edward Scissorhands wigs. The usual micro-mini bandage dresses were toughened up with bondage details--fishnet sleeves, huge, punky holes exposing the sides, and a few pairs of latex gloves.
Then came the raver phase--the electro music pumped up, the lights dipped, and the neons came out. The '90s theme was taken to an extreme, with acid yellow crop tops over cyber-punk style baggy pants. More wearable pieces came in the form of tight, long sleeved knitted party dresses, and a flowing, fringed aqua gown that we’d love to see on a celeb brave enough to rock it on the red carpet.
Several older audience members walked out mid-show--which was both odd and extremely rude. But despite what Mark Fast himself may say, these clothes are made for the young, and the young only.
