Canadian designer Mark Fast sends 'plus size' models down the runway on London Fashion Week

The designer who "broke the rules" last year did it again. Just this time the creative director didn't walk away three days before his show, apparently in protest at being asked to work with the 'plus size' models.
The knitwear designer l
ikes to use a mix of different sized models in his shows, to prove that the clinging designs look good on every bodyshape. The models were a size 42 and 46, (14 or 16)a healthy dress for their above average height. London modelling agency 12+ UK supplied the models. Founder Sarah Watkinson said 29-year-old Fast was dedicated to using real-looking women, she added that no other Fashion Week designers had sought models from her agency.
