British blog Frockwriter investigates the story about two Mark Fast staffers who quit in horror after the designer added three plus-sized models to his London Fashion Week runway show. First point of interest: According to an anonymous and possibly dubious source, the show's stylist didn't quit, but was fired. Second point of interest: "Fast's favourite stylist is Erika Kurihara, better-known as the fashion editor of iconic London style magazine i-D." The blog hasn't been able to reach Kurihara, but the Mirror implicates her in a short piece on the controversy. [Frockwriter via Jezebel; the Mirror; Previously]
