Ode to Gaultier

Lately, I’ve seen how all the great designers and idols of my early fashion dreams, are exhibited, one by one, by different museums in the world. Chalayan, Margiela, Yamamoto, McQueen, and now Gaultier. This fact makes me realize that we’re talking about the end of a gorgeous fashion era, the point when you have to stop, to look around, to analyze and move along, to new fashion horizons.

Montreal Museum of Fine Arts opened the first international exhibition devoted to the celebrated French couturier- Jean Paul Gaultier, June 17- October 2, 2011.

The exhibition was organized in six sections, mapping the guidelines to Gaultier’s fashion world, from the sidewalk to the catwalk:

The Odyssey of Jean Paul Gaultier/ The boudoir/ Skin Deep/ Punk Cancan/ Urban Jungle/ Metropolis

I’d like to take a look over there, but, surely we will get one in Europe, too.  Soon.
