Liz was in Melbourne recently and attended the Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. Luckily for us she took a few photos.
The exhibition covers 40 years of Jean Paul Gaultier’s work. The boy wonder is now 62 years old…how can that be? He began sketching designs for his mother when he was a teenager and as an 18 year old he was hired by Pierre Cardin.
He is well known for his corsetry, especially the conical bra worn by Madonna in the early 1990s. He has worked with some Australian beauties. He designed the dress Nicole Kidman wore when she received her Oscar for The Hours. He has also designed for Cate Blanchett and Kylie Minogue.
He never followed trends…he created them.
Have a look at some of the amazing pieces in the collection.
