The Scottish designer has given a unique punk look to next year’s trophy.
Pam Hogg has unveiled her design for the Brit Awards 2016 trophy. The fashion designer follows in the footsteps of names including Vivienne Westwood, Sir Peter Blake, Damien Hirst, Philip Treacy and Tracey Emin, who have all designed unique trophies for the awards in previous years.
Posting a picture of the 13 trophies on Instagram, Hogg wrote: ‘Was on BBC news...so I can now show u a closer view..I was asked to design the new BRIT award Trophy...Shld have been jst one bt I designed a lil army!.. There's 13 awards so I went with the magic number!’
Speaking about her involvement with the awards Hogg commented: “An artist’s true reward is that her/his work resonates and connects. Given a chance, the unseen unheard and unsung may also one day touch and unlock a waiting heart.”
BRITs chairman Max Lousad added: “Having designed for some of the world’s greatest music artists, it’s absolutely fitting that Pam is bringing her unique vision to The BRITs trophy. The fact that each statue will be a unique, bespoke piece mirrors her status as a truly singular talent and we are delighted to be working with her.”
After fronting punk bands in the late 1970s, Hogg unveiled her first clothing collection in 1981. Since then her designs have gone on to be worn by stars such as Kylie Minogue, Debbie Harry, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
