The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier

I was quite surprised by this exhibition. I think due to my ignorance I always related Jean Paul Gaultier with sex. I mean is not that I don’t like sex, but I just thought that all his clothing had a “pornographic” element. I was wrong, so wrong. I have to thank a friend who proved me wrong and with whom I discovered the amazing collections of this French fashion designer.

This exhibition is amusing and vast, you can see over 20 years worth of his portfolio, working with Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Kate Moss and many other artists that wanted to be his muse. Yes, the sex factor is still there, but there are many collections like ‘Folk’, where he incorporates a lot of elements from other cultures to create this collection, or the Madonnas or Saint, where religion embraces the collection.
If you can, go and see it, it is on until August 25th at the Barbican Centre, London.
