The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk @ the De Young Museum

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here are some of the photos I took on my walk through of the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition at the De Young Museum. I walked away thinking the following: A) I think I would fumble all over my words if I met Jean Paul Gaultier, B) I will never look at fiber optics, wire, actual film strips, ribbon, lace, leather, and vinyl the same way ever again (THIS is a good thing), C) I want to meet the curator and theater company that helped produce the exhibition, D) next time, I will be taking a day off from work to go to a high-profile exhibition, and E) any exhibition at a major museum on a Saturday is like being on a crowded train. Enjoy the photos AND if you checked out the show, please feel free to leave comments and share your experience!! 🙂

  1. My favorites are the ones with the codpiece, and the Cambell’s soup can gauntlet/bracelet (of course, that’s sans soup label)!

    1. YES! I LOVED that idea, actually. Believe it or not, that was the best use of soup cans I’ve ever seen. I’m happy I was able to make the show before it moved onto Boston!!!

  2. I love “Non-conformist designer seeks unusual models – the conventionally pretty need not apply.” I’m drawn to the text, of course, but this statement throws snobbery in a necessary place – the face of an industry and a society that is becoming increasingly monolithic.
