laura, in faster by fast (or, the case of the goody bag disaster)



I met Laura on Day Two, asked to take her photo, took her details.. she's really nice, turns out she works for Mark Fast and is wearing an all-in-one by him called 'Faster'. A few days later, having been backstage at.. I forget which show now, I went to the backstage door before the Mark Fast show and who should I see but my new friend Laura! But she couldn't let me in, I had to ask someone else, I wasn't on the list... I'm realising now that each show is different, and it's really the luck of the draw. That's okay: I had my one quick backstage experience (and it was fun) but I know how intense it is before shows and they just can't let everyone in.





What really touched me tho was how she (Laura) apologised after - even tho I totally understood. She said she was - and I quote: "in the middle of a goody bag disaster (which got sorted in the end!)." Now THAT's a story I'd like to hear.

p.s. Just heard from Laura - in Paris. She's also got her own fashion blog, called Clotheshound, check it out, it's really well designed, great logo, looks more professional than a lot of the magazine and brand blogs. Check out her 'about' page: she said that one day she'll edit Vogue and that she always thanks the bus driver. I believe her about the first, and I bet it's cause of things like the second. Good manners do count, as she's shown me in the short time we've met.

Knew that unitard looks mark fast-ish. It looks amazing though. You could easily think it should be reserved for runway/stage but I'm lovin it worn this way.

WOW, that is really special outfit!

Style Odyssey said...

she can certainly get away with such a difficult to wear outfit. but...those unitards...all i can think is what a pain it would be going to the loo!

Woo wee! I never thought I'd see the day the Mark Fast leotards were worn on the street, but it works! I guess you gotta have the confidence (and the body!)

She is so great...love the look and the way she's pulling off the bodysuit. I photographed her and her friend who also works for Mark Fast but haven't posted it yet. I wonder if it's a rule that you have to look this good in his clothes! x
ps- FFF email coming up asap!

I agree with Jen -- the first shot is insane. Really good, Jill.
