Pam Hogg to Design 2016 Brit Awards Statues
Punk rock fashion designer and musician Pam Hogg has been selected to design the award statues that will be given out at next year’s Brit Awards.
The 2016 awards will celebrate 40 years of punk, which makes Pam the perfect choice for creating the statues since she is both a fashion designer and a punk musician. A sneak peak of the awards shows that metallic and glitter is used in copious amounts to adorn the eye-catching statues. Each one will be completely unique so that each winning artist can take home a bespoke statue to display in their trophy cabinet.
Pam Hogg has been an influential part of British fashion since the 1980s when she first started making waves with collections such as Psychedelic Jungle and Warrior Queen. She is well known for her figure-hugging and revealing outfits which celebrate the female form and in some cases leave very little the imagination. The Brit Awards she has created very much mimic her past collections which have heavily featured bright, colourful metallic fabrics.
As a musician herself who has worked with Blondie, Siouxsie Sioux, Jarvis Cocker and The Pogues, Pam Hogg has a strong affiliation with the music industry. In the past her designs have been worn by the likes of Rihanna, Kylie Minogue and Lady Gaga, and she has been honoured multiple times over the years with special projects and awards, including the Creative Excellence prize from the Scottish Fashion Council in 2013. The honour of designing the 2016 Brits statues is further proof of her importance to the British fashion industry, and we look forward to seeing the finished collection of statues at the awards in February next year.
