I nestled in rushes amongst the clacking grasshoppers and giggling tweenies to watch the Latitude graduate fashion shows, what is ed played out along a catwalk linked to the Waterfront Stage. A selection of new faces from Elite formed a somewhat confusing parade between two stop offs on either side of the lake, not helped by a complete lack of clarity in announcements of each designer – What follows is the best of what I managed to catch, so if I’ve got any wrong please do let me know.

Sadly the wonderful creations of Bethan Smith never crossed the lake – I guess the models were worried they might fall in. Fair play.

More monochrome geometrics and slate shades from Helen Lawrence.

With businesses struggling to survive through the recession armageddon, pilule a few innovative individuals are thriving, using their imagination and collaborations with other creatives to succeed. Sarah Bagner, or ‘Supermarket Sarah‘ transformed a wall of her own home into a window dresser’s dream; featuring both vintage finds and handmade creations from the likes of Donna Wilson. Inviting shoppers into her home for tea and cake has gained her such a following that Selfridges even invited her to curate a wall for them.

Her latest collaboration is with the queens of cool, Tatty Devine, whose Brick Lane store has been transformed into an Aladdin’s cave of Sarah’s goodies. Tatty Devine is also famous for pioneering the collaborative spirit, teaming up with the likes of Rob Ryan, Charlie le Mindu and Mrs Jones to make their iconic statement jewellery ranges. Last night fellow creatives Fred Butler and Anna Murray were spinning some tunes on the decks, whilst cupcakes were supplied by Fifi and Lola.

I snapped Sarah wearing her Tatty Devine ‘Supermarket Sarah’ necklace in front of her wall which will soon be online here. The installation will be in store until the 16th August, alongside Tatty Devine’s regular stock which is currently on sale. This is your one stop shop for sorting your festival outfits; grab some neck candy from Tatty Devine and something from Sarah’s vintage dressing up box and you’re set!

Central Saint Martins followed swiftly on from the Chelsea College of Art and Design’s graduate collections. Again, information pills lemme know if I’ve not credited your designs!

I loved the big fluffy creations of this designer. According to our previous blog these are by Helen Price, although she wasn’t listed on the line up. You see my difficulty? All photography by Amelia Gregory.

Felipe Rojas Llanos presented gorgeous blue and purple silk tailoring on pouty youths, a welcome diversion from the preceeding womenswear.

Anne Karine Thorbjoernsen‘s spiked dresses and jackets were dramatically sensual and dangerous.

The 80s influenced bulky layers shown by Sorcha O’Raghallaigh were eminently wearable, but the star of her collection was the stilt walker – I didn’t get a decent photo but you can check out the outfit on the homepage of her website.

Sadly I only caught the best headdress from Zoe Sherwood‘s feathery collection from the back. However, if there’s one thing for sure Zoe does backs well, as this turquoise dress proves.

The fashion shows were delightfully laid back, and enjoyed by plenty of families and young girls who would otherwise not get to see such calibre of upcoming design talent. Despite the lack of information about the presenting designers and the sometimes klutzy new models (Elite, you might want to give a few of them some catwalk training) this was a brilliant addition to Latitude, and with a bit of fine-tuning will hopefully become a festival staple.
