628x471Gaultier speaking @ Brooklyn Museum about his exhibition

Gaultier’s unforgettable and sophisticated haute couture is making it’s way to the east coast. The exhibition will be organized into seven themes outlining the influences on Gaultier’s development – from the streets of Paris to the cinema. It was curator, Thierry-Maxime Loriot in collaboration with Maison Jean Paul Gaultier, who assembled the exhibit together.

The multimedia exhibition will feature approximately 140 haute couture and innovative ensembles, from the designer’s premature to his most recent collections. Jean Paul Gaultier has been keeping fashion on its toes for the last four decades with his theatrical, avant-garde, gender-twisting designs. The incredible retrospective opens tonight in New York City, ozzing with wit and sex appeal. Simply just hanging this clothes within the museum was too “still life” for the designer, whose exhibition includes multi-media mannequins, including one of himself. The show, put together by Montreal Museum of Fine Arts director Nathalie Bondil and Loriot is in New York until February 23.

The exhibition highlights Gaultier’s avant-garde approach to high fashion.

One of Gaultier’s muses is Karlie Kloss who has worn many of his iconic designs, the short was directed by Stéphane Sednaoui, the noted French photographer, director, and producer. The exhibition not only includes custom mannequins with interactive faces, several celebrities, including Gaultier himself have contributed to the project. Many of the mannequins revolve to display all angles of each ensemble.

The show is traveled to Rotterdam and Stockholm before arriving in New York and it has attracted over 900,000 visitors thus far.
