Pam Hogg Presents:
‘Dr. Hogg’s Divine Disorder, an exhibition of art, fashion and photography’
Friday 13th July 6-9pm
Exhibition is open 14th July – 26th August
Tuesday – Sunday 12-4pm
Britain’s most rebellious designer comes to Liverpool for her first solo exhibition.
Pam Hogg’s work has changed the traditional concepts of femininity since she began in the early 80s. Fearless, inventive, and provocative are words describing both her distinctive designs and her own iconic persona.
From the heart of London’s post-punk movement in the 80s, Hogg caught the attention of Clubland, with her bold, self-produced designs. Her early collections were stocked in Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Bloomingdales along with stores in Paris, Italy and Tokyo. But it was from her infamous Hyper Hyper Boutique in London’s Kensington High Street that presented the opportunity for her first catwalk show in 1985.
Since then she has broken archetypes and boundaries. Debbie Harry, Siouxsie Sioux, Bjork, Kylie Minogue and Paula Yates were all ambassadors of her iconic skin-tight designs. Her band, Doll, opened for Blondie in 1993 and The Raincoats in 1994.
Pam Hogg continues to create, direct, produce and style her collections, shown each season at London Fashion Week. Her clothes are requested by artists and celebrities like Kate Moss, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Beyonce.
Curated by Pam Hogg and DuoVision, this exhibition will feature art, portraits, clothes and pieces from a career re-defining popular culture. A selection of images taken by Rankin for a spread in Hunger Magazine in 2012 will feature in the exhibition.
