Fashionistas rejoice! Design legend Jean Paul Gaultier's famed 'From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk exhibition will visit Melbourne this October.
This amazing collection of Gaultier's finest work will on the show from the 15th of October right through to the 8th of February 2015, so there is plenty of time to visit, revisit and visit AGAIN.
Jean Paul Gauliter is a name synonymous with edgy and intricate fashions. Known for his penchant for blurring the lines of gender and turning the world of French fashion on its head, earning himself the moniker of 'L'enfant terrible' in the process.
'From Sidewalk to Catwalk' will showcase over one hundred and forty of Gaultier's iconic creations. The exhibition covers a selection of everything from his first ever dress, the infamous cone bustiers made for Madonna, award show gowns, to his most recent haute couture and ready to wear lines.
In addition for being able to see some of Jean Paul Gaulter's famed and breathtaking pieces in the flesh (or fabric...if you please) it has been confirmed that Jean Paul Gaultier himself will be in Melbourne, to open the exhibition on October 17th.
