LFW Feb 14: Pam Hogg



This season Showstudio.com borrowed the likes of Kate Moss, Roksanda Ilincic and Caryn Franklyn donning balaclavas to point out that Russia needs to re-address its negative ideas on gay rights. Meanwhile, a group of anti-frackers complete with placards and appliquéd messages on their jackets took up residence outside Somerset House taking full advantage of the photographers and film crews around. Vivienne Westwood looks set to join them if her show invitation is anything to go by. Elsewhere, the Diversity Coalition launched last October highlighted to the press once again that the LFW catwalk failed to reflect the capital’s diversity with a lack of black and Asian models.

Clearly not one to discriminate was Pam Hogg, her models ranged in ethnicity, size, shape and gender. Like Westwood Pam is open to expressing her opinions and this season she used her catwalk show as a pro-Pussy Riot campaign complete with placards and slogans emblazoned across second-skin catsuits.


Pam’s signature catsuits, a firm favourite with the club crowd, dominated the show arriving in an array of eye-popping colours. Also thrown into the mix were colourful knits, shiny lurex, layers of tulle and even the odd swirly, circle skirt. Accessorized with sky-high platforms, candy-colour headpieces and pom-poms each styled look was a riot of fun.

Pam has never been shy of flashing the flesh in her collections and this season her Bow-Peep bride arrived in a white, sheer catsuit complete with a few strategically placed flowers.

Emerging for her applause at the end of the show Pam wore one of her catsuits in baby blue emblazoned with the slogan ‘Courage’. And in this clearly outspoken show aimed at the repressed and homophobic notions in Russia Pam certainly showed plenty of courage of her own with a side order of fun and fantasy.
