Hogan McLaughlin

Hogan McLaughlin is an American fashion designer, illustrator, and ballet dancer.  He began his professional career with the world-renowned Hubbard Street Dance Chicago at age 16, where he performed works by noted international choreographers including Ohad Naharin, Johan Inger, and Nacho Duato.  He went on to dance several seasons for the Lyric Opera Ballet in Chicago before moving to New York City.  There, he met and collaborated with artist Daphne Guinness several fashion pieces that he had illustrated, which were made into garments for Guinness’s The Legend of Lady White Snake film collaboration with Markus Klinko and Indrani.  The garments were subsequently featured in the Guinness-curated windows at Barneys Madison Avenue, as well as at her wardrobe exhibition at the Museum at F.I.T.  McLaughlin launched his first fashion collection in 2011 and was met with profiles by The New York Times, Vogue.com, and WWD.  Celebrities soon became patrons of his work, with Lady Gaga later commissioning custom pieces of his for her Born This Way tour.  As an illustrator, McLaughlin has created promotional images for HBO’s Game of Thrones, Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, and History Channel’s Vikings.
