Pam Hogg’s signature skin tight and daring looks were further developed for autumn/winter 2012 with a sensual show of body suits, transforming from geometric racing suits to sheer celebrations of the female body.
Pam Hogg packed out the Vauxhall Fashion Scout show space during London Fashion Week, with Jo Wood, Alexandra Burke, Janice Dickinson and Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes sitting front row. The collection began with dramatic flared PVC skirts and dresses with tonnes of netting underneath. With geometric positioning of red, black and white on the dresses, there was a futuristic feel to the show. This was further enhanced as skin-tight bodysuits of the same hue took to the runway. While we have seen so many re-creations of the bodysuit, the streamlined raciness of the looks kept us on our toes. In addition the bonnets attached to the models necks added a Little Bo Beep femininity to the collection.
Hogg then propelled the bodysuit to a new height, giving us an array of risqué and very sensual looks. With panels of red and black, the sheerness of the suits gradually increased with one model wearing only a tiny patch of black PVC to cover her modesty. Amidst the nudity, one stand out piece was an elaborate, soft pink, sequined floor length dress. The intricate detailing of the floral jewels on the dress assured us that Hogg is genuinely skilled as a craftsman.
This show was signature Hogg: skin-tight, daring, and overtly sexual. She knows how to draw in a crowd, and this season has certainly safeguarded her notoriety for putting on a performance.
