THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF JEAN PAUL GAULTIER

My daughter and I went to see the "The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk" at the Dallas Museum of Art. The exhibition featured six different thematic sections tracing the influences from the streets of Paris to the world of science fiction that have marked the couturier's creative development. The Odyssey of Jean Paul Gaultier, The Boudoir, Skin Deep, Punk Cancan, Urban Jungle, and Metropolis features approximately 130 ensembles from the designer's couture collections, as well as from his prêt-à-porter line, along with their accessories. 

Created between 1976 and 2010, the majority of these pieces have never been exhibited.The most unique and interesting thing about the entire exhibition were the mannequins. Placed throughout the galleries, 30 animated, talking mannequins, including one of Gaultier, add an extra dimension to the lively atmosphere by surprising visitors with their lifelike presence and spontaneous commentary. We were unable to take pictures inside the exhibition but the internet is a wonderful resource! I found tons of media pics. Here are a few...




Here is a link for more information on the exhibition. 
If you are in the Dallas area, this is a MUST see!! Jean Paul's designs are so original and interesting. He is fearless with his details and truly one of a kind!

Thank you J.P. Gaultier for allowing us to "OOH" and "AHH" at some of your most marvelous works!!
With Love,
