In the first international exhibition devoted to the celebrated French couturier, the National Gallery of Victoria presented The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, featuring seven galleries with more than 140 superbly crafted garments in addition to photographs, sketches, stage costumes, excerpts from runway shows, film, television, concerts and dance performances.
I almost missed this amazing exhibition, which ended the 8th of February, and I’m thrilled I didn’t. Despite not being a fashionista, I’ve been a fan of Gaultier’s work for about 20 years and this show was fantastic. I was excited to see his work. Here are a few of my favourites. All these photos were taken with my iPhone 6.
With more than 140 garments on display plus design illustrations, photographs, and other props, you can imagine that this blog entry hardly does it justice. It was impressive.
