Daisy, is that you King of cling Mark Fast recruits a wig-clad Miss Lowe to model seriously sexy disco-ready dresses at his London Fashion Week show
14:45 GMT, 18 September 2012
As the lights fell, the sound of Push It by Salt N Pepa boomed out across the show space alerting guests that the party was about to start at Mark Fast’s spring/summer 2013 show today.
The disco-ready collection was modelled by British beauty Daisy Lowe, the perfect model for Fast’s signature figure-hugging knitwear.
Bra tops and micro mini dresses came in sugary sweet pastels with pops of mint and lilac throughout.

The light hues were anchored by
flashes of raspberry and navy, and adorned with chunky gold jewellery,
dipping necklaces, chain belts and large hoop earrings – the hip hop
feel of the collection was certainly clear.
Fine fringing added drama, sweeping
across the floor or dancing across legs, the clothes moving to their own
rhythm just a second after the girls.

Disco-ready: The collection was inspired by 'hot Parisian nights, broken hearts and boisterous thumping beats'
Angular bleached afro wigs perched
precariously on every head, as fun an addition as the Christian
Louboutin shoes teamed with bright pink pop socks.
While the collection will not create
as much controversy as the autumn/winter 2010 show when the Canadian-born designer's
decision to include size 12 and size 14 plus-sized models left several
fashion critics appalled, it does show that he knows his strengths and
plays to them.

‘Hot Parisian nights, broken hearts and boisterous thumping beats’ inspired the
celebratory collection and it will thrill party girl fans of Fast, who
we are likely to see shimmying on the dance floor in the designs soon.

Tattoo star Noomi Rapace and singer Kate Nash were sat front row but it
was pop princess Pixie Lott, with beau Oliver Cheshire in tow, who
seemed most captivated by the collection.

23-year-old model Daisy Lowe, who is
no stranger to being snapped in one of Mark’s creations on a night out,
proved the perfect party girl to showcase the line.
It’s fun, flirty and
will make wearers want to shake their hips late into the night.
Ahead of the show, however, it was not
the designs Miss Lowe was heard worrying about – they fit her like a
glove – she was concerned, instead that her lipstick was not quite
The clothes themselves, though, were made for dancing and we're sure the bombshell beauty can't wait to test them out.
