Cobwebbed Knitting


Outfit: Dress - Primark; Shoes - Office





Ever since Mark Fast created a collection of cobwebbed knitted dresses for Spring/Summer 2010, the fashion world has become notably enthusiastic for anything in a similar shredded, hollowed and gritty style. Fast has stated that he considers his knitting as a close cousin of hosiery rather than sweater dressing, something I agree with judging by the patterns that he creates. His success as one of London's greatest up and coming designers has been underlined in his recent collaboration with Topshop, which debuted stores in July, a feat only celebrated names of Christopher Kane and Jonathan Saunders have achieved.

I was thrilled when I spotted this cobwebbed knitted dress in Primark, could I too achieve the Mark Fast effect?

Fabulous dress! Often, I don't find myself liking what other people wear on blogs... either I'm picky, or not too adventurous - but this dress is 100% perfect.

And I love where the photos were taken - excellent backdrop. I would love to see this in a magazine.

Thank you so much for your sweet comment, and for following!

To answer your question - I don't know of any html sites, my layout is just the 'simple' design tweaked a lot in the advanced settings on blogger. I'm clueless about html, sorry!

Great dress, you definately achieved the look you were going for
It'll be a great trans-seasonal piece to layer up in autumn too :)
