Utopia: a Pam Hogg retrospective

When I hear the name Pam Hogg and my brain searches its (poorly organised) catalogue of memories, it fails to pull up any records about her clothing being worn by people I’ve met, or even about seeing it hanging on clothing racks in store. Instead I have a sole thought when Hogg’s name is mentioned: her penchant for futurist-fetishist outlandish creations, and for sending near-nude models down the runway.

Is that a negative association? I hardly think so, given it’s Hogg’s style, and her full intention that those moments stick in your mind. Hogg is somewhere between a fashion designer, a rockstar and a cult figure of sorts, with a career spanning 30 odd years; and it’s those three decades of work that Dragmag are celebrating in their inaugural issue.

Photographed by Jeff Hahn, with staying by Pam Hogg herself, this summary of the designer’s work is both visually striking and in line with the provocative nature of her creations. It’s also accompanied by an interview, which you can read by picking up a copy of the issue.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
