This set the scene for the first part of the show, which was a lot more commercial than we’ve seen from Pam before.
Using a colour palette of brown, cream and an unusual print which resembled knotted wood, she showcased an asylum inspired collection of outwear, dresses, pantsuits and a fabulous handbag. Models were constrained and gagged with brown belts and cream coats/dresses which resembled straight jackets.
I loved the small touches, the model’s eyebrows were pencilled in to look like antler horns, courtesy of Lisa Valencia and the MUA creative team.
The second part of the show leapt back to signature Pam, with metallic slashed catsuits in wet look gold and silver, huge bustle headdresses and transparent angel cape wings on skin-tight leotards.
Models Sophie Willing, Ben Grimes and Daisy Lowe all appeared in the show.
Front row spots included actress Jamie Winstone (wearing Pam Hogg), Primal Scream’s Bobbie Gilespie, Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes, singer Pete Burns, artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Moloko’s Róisín Marie Murphy, TV presenter Nicky Hambleton-Jones and former model Janice Dickenson.
