Faster by Mark Fast
Mark fast was born 30 years ago in a small Canadian villaje, Winnipeg, between a highway and the forest. These intimate and familiar spaces lead him to wonder how life would be outside Canadian frontiers, and decided to leave. He finally settled in London and completed his BA in fashion design at the school Central Saint Martins, and later in 2008 he also completed his MA there. Since then, he has worked for many prestigious fashion labels such as Woolmark, Danier, Christian Louboutin, Loewe, Bora Aksu, Swarovski, Pinko and Topshop, obtaining, this way, an unviable CV. The collection under his own name is characterized by unique knitwear pieces, specially very short dresses created for strong, independent and selfconfident women, or â€œwomen that enjoy life and loveâ€?, as he says. His designs are knitted by hand,
using only a domestic knitting machine. His work is formed onto the body as he knits, creating an intimate relationship between the garment and the person inside it, so the finished work is always a collaboration between the two parts, dress and wearer. Markâ€™s designs combine areas of tension and areas of volume over the body, created by knitting methods that mix natural fibres and lycra. Fast has also devised innovative stitching techniques, blending lycra with the finest luxury wools. In this last AW 11/12 collection Mark Fast has also designed several and magnificent leather pieces produced by Danier, in Toronto, the Canadian leather goods company for whom he worked in the past, and they are even planning to create a small capsule collection together in the near future.

PERSONS OF SPECIAL COURTESY LUCIA ZAPATA My name is Lucia Zapata, I am 28 years old, I am from Madrid and I have been living in Lisbon and the two last years in Berlin, and there is where I first came in touch with street style photography. In the German capital I was working for a magazine called ExBerliner as a photographer and coolhunter and now, back in Madrid, I continue developping my own project on the basis of a blog called “Unique People”. Thanks to this project, these days I am working as a fashion photographer in diverse media.
Now it has been more or less two months that I am living in Madrid and I have finally settled in. I still can’t complain, there are so many things to do and see and I haven’t been bored yet, not even been thinking about it. Few weeks before I moved to the capital, we presented a blog on Fashionfreax, called “Unique People”, that is based in Madrid and run by Lucia Zapata. It was not that easy to catch up with her, it took a couple of tries and that might be because she is an individual of
many talents. First of all, just have a look at the next page, she is a fashion photographer, secondly a DJ (Moomba) and she is also qualified in psychology. And, as if all this wouldn’t be enough, she has been travelling during the last years, but she will explain her trajectory much better to you, so give it up for Lucia Zapata!

Elie Tahari was born in 1952 in Jersualem. His parents, a Persian-jewish couple, moved from Iran to Israel, where Elie was born, then they moved back to Iran and back again to Israel, so his first years of life were pretty messy. When he was still a child his parents divorced and his father remarried, so he was sent to an orphanage by the Israeli social services. After spending some years at the Israeli Air Force boarding school, in 1971 he immigrated to the United States as an electrician. He finally settled in Manhattan, where, working in a boutique of Greenwich Village, was introduced to
women’s fashion. At that point, Tahari started to create his own label, first inspired in the New York nightclub scene, inspiration that led his collections during the 70’s and made him create flirty dresses. These collections were rapidly very well received, so he was able, in 1974, to open his first store in Madison Avenue, and he was, in fact, one of the first designers to do so. Always a step forward from the others, and with his ability to predict what women wanted before they did themselves, he moved, in the 80’s, to a new style, focusing his collections in the tailored suit. At his 46th birthday, Elie met his future wife, and when coupled, the team they both formed tripled the size of the company, arriving to create a $500 million business with presence on five continents. First focused in women’s wear, in 2006 the company finally launched a men’s wear line and also expanded into accessories and has been growing still until now even introducing a jewelry line. Also, in 1997, he and his business partner, Andrew Rosen, co-founded the Theory fashion brand, but in 2003 Tahari sold his share of the business, nowadays very popular by having hired Olivier Theyskens as a designer, about whom he talked last month. Elie Tahari’s collections are well known for dressing modern, sexy and sophisticated women, and are characterized by its feminine and sensual fabrics, subtle textures and detailing; those create an environment of modern sophistication and make women look fresh, actual and luxurious too. And all of this is possible according to his belief that “clothing should be quieter that the woman, so that her true beauty can shine through”

Among the materials he uses, we can find PVC, latex, parachute silk and foam, among many others. He is known for revitalizing British and European fashion and by his exuberant imagination and his theatrical conception of fashion, transmitting an unreal feeling. Until 2007, his clothes were only made to be shown at the catwalks but were unavailable to purchase. Now it is time to see if he is just an amazing fashion artist or if he can also give a good result in terms of commerce. By now, we are starting to see how he is slowly introducing more wearable creations within his collections, and we know he has partnered with major manufacturers to produce some of his pieces, which can be understood as a way of starting to be a designer for people, and not only for the show. text by Laura Sunyer

IS CARINE ROITFELD DESIGNING HER OWN LABEL? BALMAIN HIRES OLIVIER ROUSTEIGN
Balmain, the 66 year old French fashion house, reinvented itself a few years ago with designer Christophe Decarnin’s arrival, launching a series of collections based in skimpy dresses and sparyon jeans, very rock and roll, sexy and young, and shockingly expensive. All of this started in 2005, when Decarnin launched Balmain to a younger audience full of celebrities and fashion editors, breaking up with the classical and stuffy old Balmain and starting a new era for the brand, based in a rocker-chic style, very risky but genius in some cases. Six years later, the brand announced in March that Christophe would be leaving the brand and would be replaced by someone else to ensure continuity with the new Balmain’s style. Mr Decarnin’s departure had been expected since early March, when he did not show up at his show during Paris fashion week. Supposedly, one of the reasons for Decarnin’s departure was the many critics the brand received because of its extravagant prices, contributing to tension between the fashion designer and management over strategy. After the John Galliano’s episode, followed by this change in Balmain and also some other designer changes in Cacharel and Azzaro, we can see that luxury fashion houses, in part because of the crisis, are becoming less interested in promoting lively personalities than in protecting their own brands.
A few weeks ago, a woman named Amber Atherthon tweeted this photo of a garment with a Carine Roitfeld tag. Since then, many rumors of Roitfeld’s creating her own brand have started to pop out. And, to top it off, the same day that picture was tweeted, some Derek Blasberg tweeted another picture where Roitfeld appeared with hairstylist Luigi Murenu and photographer Iango Henzi at the Wolseley in London, which have awakened the suspect that they could be already planning the lookbook for the premiere CR collection. After leaving French Vogue, it was known that Roitfeld was planning some freelance projects related to fashion, but never, since now, was thought that the possibility of a collection designed by her was among the options
TOP MODEL NATASHA POLY MARRIES PETER BAKKER IN SAINT TROPEZ
Lately this last month, the French house has announced that the designer that will be replacing Christophe Decarnin will be Olivier Rousteing, who has been in charge of the brand’s woman design studio since 2009 and worked for Roberto Cavalli before getting in Balmain. This option has been considered the best for two reasons; the young designer already knows the enterprise running and will be offering continuity to Decarnin’s work.
Top model Natasha Poly was married last month to businessman Peter Bakker. The ceremony had place at the Byblos Hotel in the small and luxurious village of Saint Tropez, at the French Cote d’Azur. The celebration involved more than 200 guests and lasted three days, this means a whole weekend that combined both relaxation and glamorous and exclusive parties. At the grate feast that had place after the receipt, the British “Bleeding Love” girl, Leona Lewis, performed and sang a few songs for the couple. The day after, to compensate the hang-over, the couple ended the weekend with a relaxing brunch during a sunny day in the French coast. The bride, Natasha, chose a classic white gown for that special day, and honored Givenchy’s designer Ricardo Tisci to create the dress for the most important day of her life.

GWYNETH PALTROW, NUEVO ROSTRO PARA COACH
When, a few days ago, Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted leaving the Coach Headquarters, many rumors began to speculate that she would possibly become the image of the new Coach label, Reed Krakoff, launched last year by Coach’s creative director. However, it turned out to be even more than that, because Paltrow will be the new international ambassador of plain old Coach, celebrating the brand’s 70th anniversary this fall. Paltrow has already posed for the brand, in a photo session that had place on a Manhattan rooftop and was shot by internationally well known photographer Peter Lindbergh. Billboards and websites will be inundated by this campaign in Asia and Europe, but print versions won’t appear in magazines until the September issues.
PRIVATE EQUITY FIRM TPG MIGHT BUY JIMMY CHOO The news that the brand Jimmy Choo was on sale have been bombing the fashion news during months, and, since the announcement of that, many companies have showed interest in acquire the brand. The brand Jimmy Choo belongs to TowerBrook capital, and not to Jimmy Choo the man, who has been trying to buy back his namesake brand during this last months. The last thing we know about the subject is that the private equity firm TPG, which this spring has bought J.Crew, has put in a bid to get also Jimmy Choo. Some reports suggested that TPG might be considering to joint with Choo the man, which the firm has denied rapidly.
FERRE CONSIDERS HIRING GALLIANO After the Galliano’s scandal, the designer has been despised by Dior and hasn’t received any other offers to continue his career as a top designer. The question of what was he going to do now and what would be his next projects was in many people’s minds. Finally, it seems that his name has started, again, to generate interest within the fashion industry, which is starting to consider him to design again. The first brand who has reportedly expressed interest in hiring the currently unattached designer has been Ferre, owned by Paris Group. This information has circulated according to WWD reports. Ferre, which recently let go designers Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi, seem to be seriously reflecting the possibility of hiring Galliano as a designer. Although Paris Group denied the reports and that a deal has not materialized yet, speculations about the group wanting to buy LVMH’S 91 percent of Galliano brand are circulating.
HERMES SELLS ITS 45% OF JP GAULTIER TO PUIG 30 MILLION WORTH Under Jean Paul Gaulter’s approval, Hermès has sold its part of the brand to the Spanish familiar enterprise Puig, located in Barcelona and which produces perfumes for famous brands such as Prada or Comme des Garçons, owns the cosmetic brand Payot and also possesses the brands Carolina Herrera, Paco Rabanne and Nina Ricci. Hermès CEO, Patrick Thomas, has sold its part for 30 million Euros and said that “the alliance between Jean Paul Gaultier and the Puig family will bring renewed successes”. The designer still owns the 55 per cent of the brand, so he still has the control over his company, but would like to sell a part of it to promote his brand in Asia. Hermès bought a part of Gaultier’s brand 12 years ago, but lately, it has maintained some tense relationship with the designer, who resigned from his post as artistic director of the brand after the Hermès expresident, Jean Louis Dumas, died and his son succeeded his position.

Projecting another realities Originality in videosystems has always developed with technological innovations in projection devices. Since the eighties, different artists started to experiment with the many opportunities that these devices offered them. Tony Oursler made some videosystems where he projected talking heads over some eggshaped ovals, and Bill Viola and Steve McQueen created monumental screened presentations in huge walls. The latest years, the 3D technique development and the searching for stunning methods for the show business and publicity have given place to a new communication technique using screening, the 3D mapping projection. This technique is characterized for screening third dimension images over surfaces such as huge building facades, big installations or objects etc. Agencies like the TCH Access Agency offer the maximum creativity to acquire incredible volume and depth effects . From the success of the Samsung 3D projection on the historical building in Amsterdam, Beurs van Berlage, in May 2010, many brands like Mattel, Nike or Toyota have recourse to this technique. We present you one of the most successful projections that gave been lately created for the “Adidas is all in” campaign. This projection had place on the Palais du Pharo’s surface in Marseille, a big scale project orchestrated by DJ Cut Killer. This technique has also been used for fashion brands such as Ralph Lauren and, recently, we could see a good example during the new Santa Eulàlia store opening, a classic in the fashion business in Barcelona, placed in Paseo de Gracia.

Rick Owens was born in Porterville, California, in 1962. He studied fine arts at Otis College of Art and Design in La but dropped out after two years because he hated pattern-making classes. After that, he started working for some local companies specialized in sportswear and imitations of designer clothing. It wasnâ€™t until 1994 that he finally created his own label and spent some years selling his creations exclusively to La retailer Charles Gallay. In 2001, he opened his selling opportunities and signed with Italian sales agent Eo Bocci Associati for worldwide distribution so he had to move his production also to Italy. His first step to fame was when photographer Corrianne Day shot Kate Moss, styled by Panos Yiapanis, (with whom he would continue working forever), wearing one of Owenâ€™s fitted distressed leather jackets, and was published in Vogue Paris. After that, his pieces were well known all over the world and he finally showed his first collection in New York fashion week in September 2002, with the support of American Vogue and its editor in chief, Anna Wintour, who also featured him in a spread shot by Annie Leibovitz with the performing artist, Kembra Pfahler, as a model. After this first collection, he launched, in the second, his menswear collection which also showed in his S/S 2003 show in New York. After this second show and married to Michele Lamy, despite being bisexual, he decided to move, in 2003, from LA to
