Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier

Last weekend I went to Fashion World of Jean Paul Gautier From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk exhibition which was one the best fashion exhibitions I have ever been.

Jean Pault Gaultier is famous for his avant-garde fashion creations and cutting-edge designs. His daring designs and ceaseless interest in identity, society and beauty shaped the look of fashion and have earned him a place in fashion history. Gaultier is fascinated by world cultures and countercultures, conceiving a new kind of fashion in both the way it is made and worn. Through twists, transformations, transgressions and reinterpretations, he not only erases the boundaries between cultures but also the sexes, redefining the idea of androgyny or subverting fashion codes.

His theatrically-staged exhibition brought together more than 165 cutting-edge couture and ready-to-wear garments including iconic costumes for film and performance from the early 1970s to the present day. The infamous conical bra and corsets Madonna wore during her 1990 Blonde Ambition World Tour were showcased alongside stage costumes designed for Kylie Minogue as well as pieces created for the films of Pedro Almodóvar, among others.

The exhibition was split into eight thematic sections – The Odyssey of Jean Paul Gaultier, Punk Cancan, Muses, The Boudoir, Metropolis, Eurotrash, Skin Deep and Urban Jungle.

Have a look at my favourites from the first major retrospective of the world famous French designer.
