Cone bras, striped shirts and crazy corsets all come to mind when I think about Gaultier. A true crazy genius who always marches to his own drum. With a quirky sense of humour and an eye for the ridiculous some of Gaultiers styles were less fashion and more art.


Which is fine, creation for the sake of it should be applauded. Then every so often amongst the craziness you would catch a glimpse of a sublime dress or piece that took your breath away. It’s this crazy mixed with gorgeous that makes him admire him so. Am very excited that there is an exhibition coming to Australia so I can see more of the pieces up close.

    I saw the same Gaultier show at the Barbican here in London last month, it was fabulous and very inspiring (and I didn’t really consider myself a Gaultier fan previously). Some of the textile manipulation was amazing. I’ve been meaning to blog about it…

      It sounds wonderful, he is coming to do a talk but the tickets are already sold out. We so rarely get clothing exhibitions of this kind that I cannot wait to go.

      Yes you do!

      Some of us are considering a sneaky mid week getaway to get in when there are less crowds?
