Gaultier-mania has hit Stockholm with the opening of THE FASHION WORLD OF JEAN PAUL GAULTIER: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, the first international exhibition devoted to the celebrated French couturier.
We spent the day with Jean Paul Gaultier himself and the curator of the show, gorgeous former top model Thierry-Maxime Loriot at the Swedish Center for Architecture and Design.
After a very candid chat with the iconic designer we got a sneak preview of this major exhibition, which features more than 120 ensembles – like Madonna- and Lady Gaga stage costumes – along with video and completely new photographs presented in a very fashion forward, hi-tech way with ‘living mannequins’.
Gaultier’s has always been about openness and pushing the boundaries of what’s considered beautiful, and this exhibition – bringing couture to the masses – does just that. More on this exhibition in the August issue.
