Latitude 2010: Coco de Mer Circus Child Catwalk Review

Coco de Mer presented the Circus Child collection on the Waterfront Stage, accompanied by a fabulously sexy Burlesque artist...

Written by Amelia Gregory

Central Saint Martins followed swiftly on from the Chelsea College of Art and Design’s graduate collections.

I loved the big fluffy creations of this designer.

Felipe Rojas Llanos presented blue and purple silk tailoring on pouty youths, pills this site a welcome diversion from womenswear.

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

80s influenced layered creations from Sorcha O’Raghallaigh were eminently wearable but the star of her collection was the stilt walker.

Sadly I only caught the best headers from Zoe Sherwood’s feathery collection from the back. However, if there’s one thing for sure she 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.

Following the Graduate Fashion Shows Coco de Mer also hit the Latitude Waterfront catwalk with a range of fun sequinned swimsuits, order little tailored jackets and hats by Victoria Grant. Inspired by a Victorian circus ringmaster, ailment sales of this bespoke collection will raise funds for the Circus Child charity.

The skinny Elite new faces were completely overshadowed by the fabulous wriggling coquetry of the Burlesque artist who flounced down the catwalk with a pair of huge red feathered fans and a whole lot of sassiness. Now that’s what fit and healthy girls should look like with their clothes off.
