We’re so pleased to announce that Pam Hogg is on schedule. Her spring summer 18 collection will be shown with Fashion Scout during London Fashion Week at 12:00 on Friday 15th September. Pam Hogg is a legendary fashion designer, rockstar and artist who appeared on the cover of the 'raw' issue of i-d in 1989.
Pam, who has supported Debbie Harry and The Pogues, is friends with Siouxie Sioux and Bobby Gillespie, has had her fabulous fashions worn by everyone from Kylie to Rihanna. Scottish born and bred, Pam cuts a striking dash wherever she treads, is a fabulous raconteur, great fun with an incredible talent.
Her fashion journey begun at the prestigious and famously creative Glasgow School of Art where she won The Newbury medal of distinction, the frank warner memorial medal, The Leverhulme Scholarship and the Royal Society of Arts bursary, which subsequently took her on to further study at the Royal College of Art, where she gained her masters of art.
Teaching herself to make clothes from a young age, she caught the attention of Clubland in the late seventies and early eighties heralding a new area of development which led to her hugely successful career in fashion. Her creations were immediately embraced by the popular magazines of the time. Pam was also photographed for i-d, Blitz and The Face and soon became a vital key in the emerging fashion talent simultaneously rising up as the city of London was named the innovative fashion capital of the world.
Her first collections sold to Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and Joseph in London; Bloomingdales, Benders and Charivari in New York and independent boutiques in Paris, Italy and Tokyo proving what an imminent designer she is. In Pam’s previous AW17 collection, the audience were presented with a collection inspired by retro military uniform with a sexy aesthetic and racy fabric choices. Her retro, throwback choice of design cultivates its audience, allowing the viewer to reminisce on trends of the past, and contemplate how they influence the future. After the dramatic thematic show of last season, we’re eager to see what Pam has created for SS18.
