Pam Hogg: London Fashion Week S/S 2014 Catwalk Review

On Monday 16th September 2013 Pam Hogg showcased her S/S 2014 collection at Freemasons' Hall. As always, she offered us a theatrical spectacle which celebrated life's contradictions whilst steering well clear of commercial trends.

Pam Hogg S/S 2014 by xplusyequals

We waited for almost an hour outside Freemasons’ Hall due to the usual buzz which surrounded the Pam Hogg S/S 2014 catwalk show at Fashion Scout during London Fashion Week. The rain came and went a few times - the opening and closing umbrellas not quite sheltering the fashionable kids queuing – but as ever it was worth the wait! Once inside, I squeezed tightly in between a lot of other keen bloggers at the photographers’ end and we all laughed and joked, merrily cooperating with each other in working out our collective positioning for optimum shots. Those in the front rows near us also seemed to be in great spirits, a few of them refreshingly slouching in their chairs and sporting messed up hair, torn jeans and casual wear.
