BLAKE SHELDON - 'MAN AT DOOR' // INTERVIEW

Interviewed by: Taylor Thompson

It’s a calm Wednesday afternoon, I meet Blake Sheldon at his cabin style apartment in the hills of Highland Park. He is wondering why anyone would want to hear an interview with him. Blake by no means is someone that you would be familiar with, not yet at least. He’s an actor that is proudly in the thick of it, his life is still far from the glitz and glam of Hollywood that you’d imagine. And I explain to him that this is the precise reason why someone should read this interview.

TAYLOR THOMPSON

PAM HOGG

Legendary Scottish fashion designer, artist and musician; Pam Hogg removes the barriers of normality in her work. She demonstrates how struggle can be transformed into a creative force, imperfections are honoured, chaos is embraced and the insurmountable is a barrier to be lifted. Pam Hogg’s work is the antithesis of classic high fashion.  Her designs are mainly visual pieces incorporating both her clothes and her music. They are innovative and daring with unusual fabrics, shapes and details. Her fashion shows, often encompass a tale or personal story belonging to her or one of her models, which makes her shows so incredible to witness. Perhaps, Pam Hogg’s most important, prevailing and bold collection was her unexpected a/w14 show, which happened to be never scheduled to take place. Until, amnesty international approached her three weeks before February 2014 London fashion week was to commence.

WESTWOOD AND McQUEEN//INFLUENCING FASHION

Dame Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen are often both looked upon as avant-garde icons with a large library of collections that influenced some haute couture and certain subcultures.

With Westwood this is particularly evident as she helped to cement the original aesthetic of punk, and her influence on couture, ready to wear and high street fashion is relatively easy to see.

McQueen, however, was always seen as the enfant terrible of British fashion right from his graduation show, “Jack the Ripper Stalks His Victims”.
