THE FASHION WORLD of JEAN PAUL GAULTIER

Planning to visit Paris this summer? There is still a chance to visit this amazing exhibition:

“The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier. From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” at Grand Palais in Paris. I visited this expo serveral times in 2013 in Rotterdam. 

I needed several times because besides it is fabulous it really is an experience. This illustration is an interpretation of this expo.

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. In its tenth stop here in Paris, 

after Montréal, Dallas, San Francisco, Madrid, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Brooklyn, London and Australia, the show is a high point in Jean Paul Gaultier’s career.

An exhibition organised by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts with the Réunion des musées nationaux – Grand Palais, together with Maison Jean Paul Gaultier, Paris. 

A special edition for the Grand Palais

Initiated by Nathalie Bondil, director and head curator of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot, curator of the same institution, The Fashion World of 

Jean Paul Gaultier features astonishing haute couture and prêt‐à‐porter ensembles designed between 1970 and 2013.

The exhibition has drawn on the talent of many famous experts and artists: the avant-garde Montreal theatre company UBU directed by Denis Marleau and Stéphanie Jasmin used innovative technology to animate the mannequins (Jolicoeur international); for the first time in an exhibition, Odile Gilbert (Atelier 68) designed hairstyles for each mannequin; and previously unpublished prints by artists and fashion photographers round off the Paris show.

The multimedia show also includes sketches, archives, stage costumes, film footage, fashion shows, concerts, videoclips, dance and even television shows.
