The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier. From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk is a phenomenon that has wowed over a million visitors on its international tour. After Montréal, Dallas, San Francisco, Madrid, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Brooklyn, London and Australia, the show is a high point in Jean Paul Gaultier’s career.
The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier features astonishing haute couture and prêt‐à‐porter ensembles designed between 1970 and 2013.
"This is the work of a flamboyant genius who’s very much alive and well. It’s know-how mixed with imagination, enveloped in humor—and there’s nothing contradictory about it. Elegance should be anything but square. Hopefully it will inspire lots of young people to get into fashion—but not the minimalist kind, the époustouflant kind" said Ines de la Fressange at the Parisian opening.
The multimedia show also includes sketches, archives, stage costumes, film footage, fashion shows, concerts, videoclips, dance and even television shows.
