Pam Hogg Autumn-Winter 12-13 catwalk show,
at Vauxhall Fashion Scout in the Royal Freemasons' Hall,
London Fashion Week, February 2012.
PAM HOGG is an iconic fashion designer from the United Kingdom.Hogg had a meteoric rise to fame after her studies of Fine Art and Printed Textiles at the Glasgow School of Art.
She joined her first band ‘Rubbish’ at the end of the seventies regularly supporting The Pogues in their infancy.
Pam Hogg launched her first fashion collection in 1981. She was, along with Bodymap, one of the new wave of designers who emerged at the beginning of the 1980s in London. Hogg first sold out of Hyper Hyper in London's Kensington and later from her own shop in Newburgh Street always refusing to ‘sell out’ to the mainstream fashion industry.
Mid eighties, still fueled by the excitement and freedom of Punk and The Blitz, Hogg infiltrated the elitist ranks of the conventional fashion world with her self-taught wild brand of outrageous creations establishing a highly respected fashion career and continued success with her internationally renowned shop in the heart of London’s Soho.
Pam opened her first outlet in 1984 at Hyper Hyper in Kensington High Street and is the name behind the style of Ian Astbury of The Cult, Paula Yates, Marie Helvin, Siouxsie Sioux and the iconic Debbie Harry of Blondie.
Unexpectedly landing the support act with Debbie Harry in 1993, she formed new band ‘Doll’ in five days, and in 1994 with the band firmly established, opened for the post punk band The Raincoat
In 2003 Hogg was approached by Jarvis Cocker collaborator, Jason Buckle to form a “Cramps like band” which would become known as Hoggdoll. Using his swamp like Rockabilly sounds as a backdrop she wrote and recorded 6 tracks in as many weeks and built up an underground following across the globe.
Her unexpectedly tender song 'Honeyland' touched a nerve and eventually surfaced on The Berlin Based Art Riot band Chicks on Speed 'Girlmonster' compilation in 2006.
Inspired by Siouxsie Sioux’s Japanese concept, she designed the costumes for the Ice Queen of Punk’s 2004 world tour ‘Dreamshow’.
