Mark Fast advocates holey tights
Fashion designer Mark Fast has fast risen to fame after re-launching Crystal Renn's career and even trying to spice up knitwear for a younger audience.

He's released a number of high end collections and has dressed a range of celebrities including Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and Jessie J.

The Ontario-born London Fashion Week designer also has a huge passion for hosiery, and recently told Grazia Daily that women shouldn't be afraid to ladder their tights.

When asked what advice he had for fans he recommended: "If you get a hole in one of them, make more holes as a feature; be creative!"

Mr Fast went on to discuss his inspiration to become a fashion designer and described an occasion when he bought 400 pairs of vintage hosiery from a 1940s-style retro shop.

"I don't know what I will do with them, but at least I have them," he joked to the women's magazine.
