Although honoured with medals and scholarships from the GSA and receiving her MA from the Royal College in London, Pam is self-taught in fashion. Her unorthodox approach has helped her gain a reputation as a style rebel; and she cites disarray, disorder, disruption as drivers for her work. In her talk Pam will give an insight into her world – how struggle is transformed into creative force, imperfections are honoured, chaos is embraced, and the insurmountable is seen as just another barrier to be lifted.
Pam Hogg is a legendary fashion designer, rockstar and artist who appeared on the cover of the raw issue of i-D in 1989.

Scottish born and bred, and holding the Newbury Medal of Distinction from the Glasgow School of Art, Pam cuts a striking dash wherever she treads, is a fabulous raconteur, great fun and an incredible talent.
