Sydney’s Inspiration – Jean Paul Gaultier

The original muse, Jean Paul Gaultier’s teddy bear Nana.

We missed its Montreal debut, but caught it in Paris.

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk has drawn over a million visitors on its international tour.

 An incredible inspiration to us, Gaultier’s creations are one of the reasons why we got interested in fashion.
Organised by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the exhibition made its way onto Dallas, San Francisco, Madrid, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Brooklyn, London, Australia, and Paris.  336 pieces designed from 1976 to 2015 were on view, including 175 haute couture ensembles and ready-to wear outfits.
The exhibit is an impressive theatrical showcase of Jean Paul Gaultier’s career.
