The collection was entitled "Save Our Souls", so I can only assume the flimsily-clad nurses at the beginning of the show were fully qualified in soul first aid. Inventive spandex bodysuits are Pam Hogg's thing - and a thing she does very well indeed, though they're sadly not particularly wearable for us normos (Manchester may be an open-minded city but I would still get a few funny looks, and the rest, walking around Sainsbury's in one of the geometric suits. Might be alright for Canal Street mind) - but wedding attire was clearly at the forefront of her mind when creating this collection, with tulle confections smattering the runway, complete with Elizabeth I-esque headpieces. Granted they'd have to be tweaked before you ever went near a church in them - there's nipples and side-boobs galore - but at least you wouldn't look like a sickly meringue.
Check out Alice Dellal modelling for Pam, plus Jo Wood, Kate Nash, and Jaime Winstone (sat next to Charlotte Gush - that girl is smashing it) on the front row. Most shows at fashion week are full of wearable collections, of which you think "that was nice.. but where's the imagination?" The Pam Hogg show was a real show and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. To phrase it in a rather twattish Grazia way, this show was definitely my fashion moment of the season.
