It came as no surprise that the designer, who designed THAT wedding dress for Lady Mary Charteris, raised as many eyebrows in controversy at LFW as the vicar who met the skimpy bride at the altar.
Freemasons hall was packed with an array of actors, musicians, aristocrats, designers and club kids showing the diverse cult following Pam Hogg has artfully crafted over the past two decades.
Beats provided by Carter Tutti created the sound-scape to the collection, enhancing the already charged atmosphere. The presentation of clothes and dancing models evoked a kind of primal mysticism which entranced and sometimes overwhelmed the viewer into a beautiful submission…
Taking the mythological tale of ‘The Emperors Clothes’ as inspiration, Pam led her audience through a creative repertoire of dominatrix fetishism in PVC bodysuits shimmering in gothic black and blood red, paired with large cubic headdresses in a similar material, to glamorous satin evening-wear in ivory, emerald green and red, cut contrastingly to a demure knee length for dresses and high necklines.
Pam’s boldest creative statement was in the models full frontal nudity, but for floor length coats, matching cubic head pieces and thigh high PVC boots, except this time there was no delusion of any ‘special’ threads, these threads were simply majestic!
Closing the show in a liquid gold and red PVC jumpsuit alongside the models, Pam proved that her creative intelligence, design and humour still had a deeply rooted place in what any good fashion show should be, a performance.
