A French-Canadian museum gets tres chic today as Fashion's French bad-boy gets a retrospective. The exhibit celebrates the Jean Paul Gaultier's 35 years in design. The looks presented are divided into five themes of his influence on fashion design, Paris, Fusions, Multi-Gender, Eurotrash/X-rated and Metropolis.
Besides clothing creations, the museum will display photos, sketches and audiovisual elements. Mainstream fans will probably look for his collaborations with pop culture icons like Lady Gaga, Madonna, Kylie Minogue and Andy Warhol. What would lingerie be without the iconic cone bra? Gaultier also contributed to memorable looks in film, photography and concerts.
The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts exhibit of The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk runs until October 2, 2011.
