All Eyes On.... PAM HOGG

I remember sitting in my room in my hometown Wels when i was about 14 years old and listening to "Siouxie and the Banshees" and looking them up in the internet - wish was more of a task as a pleasure at that time believe me.

What cought my eye was the AMAZING crazy costumes Siouxie Sioux was wearing - thank god for credits - the dress was by PAM HOGG.

Back then as now i was completely fascinated and attracted to/by independent strong women who frankly just don't give a fuck. So the combination of Siouxie Sioux and Pam Hogg was almost to good to be true ;)


About Pam:
Pam Hogg studied at the 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 in London, where she gained her Masters of Art degree.
Pam Hogg’s first catwalk show was with the collective ”Hyper Hyper’ in 1985. Pam and her collections gained immediate press attention. 

 







In 1989, “Warrior  Queen”, her  fiercely titled sixth and final group show won her the cover of ID magazine. She left Hyper Hyper that same year and relocated to a small self contained shop parallel to Carnaby Street in the heart of Soho. She continued to create, produce and direct her own London Fashion Week Catwalk Shows for a further six seasons. Her clients ranged from Debbie Harry and Siouxsie Sioux to Björk, Kylie Minogue and Paula Yates.









PAM GOES MUSIC

its actually quite the next thing to do if you are friends with "the pogues", Debbie Harry, Björk and Paula Yates.

So in 1993 her band PAMDOLL opened for Blondie and the Raincoats.



The resulting videos ‘Opel Eyes’ and ‘Electricman’ were viewed by a whole new unexpected audience via youtube and myspace as well as the exhibition itself. This direct access and exposure regenerated a new found interest in Pam’s work and pushed her back into the spotlight resulting in media attention from magazines including Vogue and ID.
