The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is currently housing the exhibition, “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk,” showcasing the designer’s influences from the streets of Paris to the world of science fiction. With a focus on creative development, the exhibit features unreleased video clips and 120 iconic designs.
“My life is my work, so you’ll find out everything about me! It’s a great adventure, because my designs will be displayed in a totally new way. In a way, it will be the biggest show I’ve ever done — but also my biggest collection in a way, because it will be divided into six themes that often recur in my work.” — Jean Paul Gaultier
The Gaultier exhibition is on display through October 2, 2011 and will arrive at San Francisco’s de Young Museum in 2012.
