JEAN PAUL GAULTIER EXHIBITION

Today's post is going to be quite picture-heavy, I hope you don't mind. A photo says a thousand words after all. A few days ago, I visited the Jean Paul Gaultier's 'From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk' exhibition. One word- amazing! I was in awe by all of his creations and couldn't stop admiring every master piece. It was a great insight to learn how Gaultier's mind works and what has inspired him. There's no boundaries when it comes to JPG, he doesn't follow trends but rather create them and that's admirable. 
"Fashion is about what you look like, which translates to what you would like to be like."- Jean Paul Gaultier  

Before entering the JPG exhibition, I was greeted by Carsten Höller's Golden Mirror Carousel. It's just so beautiful to look at and you get a different perspective when you're sitting on it. Through the golden mirror reflection, it gives an illusion that it moves quickly like your usual merry-go- round. Instead, it is the opposite and it moves quite slowly to allow the subject to re-imagine the situation from a different environment.

As I entered the exhibition, the man himself was welcoming guests to his world. Not literally but close enough. The little girl in me would be freaked out by the talking mannequins once upon a time, but I thought it was a smart concept and I liked the interactive side of it. 
   
This gown was worn by Sarah- Jessica Parker!! 
Mohawks. Tartans. Union Jacks. JPG isn't afraid to hold back and take a risk. For this particular collection, he had elderly and children modeled for his work. I love the elements of punk and space.
A tribute to Amy Winehouse.
A beautiful collection showcasing JPG's influences, obsessions and passions such as the streets of Paris.
Phenomenal!!
 
This was worn by Nicole Kidman. 
I really wish you could see this creation with your own eyes, it was beautiful! This was one of my favourite of his designs. 
Made famous by Madonna, JPG is well-know for his corsetry. 
Camouflaged to the wall..
 
David Shrigley's work ^

To sum up JPG's work is unique, provocative, dramatic, entertaining and daring. I love how he break down stereotypes and creates freedom. Kudos to you, JPG! Truly an inspiration. I recommend if you ever get the chance to visit his exhibition, definitely do so! 
What do you think of Gaultier's work?
