Ahead of the exclusive release of Ruth Hogben's backstage images from Gareth Pugh's Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, footage of the dark and dramatic show is now available on our Collections page.
Adding to our comprehensive collections coverage, the footage captures Pugh's signature aesthetic, visionary approach and unconventional use of materials. As Kiki Georgiou noted in her show report, 'shredded bin bags edged hemlines where someone more ordinary than Pugh might have opted for feathers.'
The show, set in Hotel Solomon de Rothschild, was also covered in a live panel discussion where Caryn Franklin and Norman Rosenthal debated notions of femininity. 'For me, this is power dressing. It isn’t about reducing women to a body,' said Franklin.
