Mark designs his knits by hand on a domestic knitting machine. His work is formed onto the body as he knits. He has devised innovative stitching techniques, blending lycra with the finest luxurious yarns creating new exciting textures. He is inspired by the endless possibilities of lycra yarns, sculpting areas of tension and areas of volume over the body.
