Today see’s the Barbican host and open the first major exhibition devoted to the celebrated French couturier, Jean Paul Gaultier. This exhibition allows you to explore Jean Paul Gaultier’s weird and wonderful fashion universe.
With his avant-garde fashion creations and cutting-edge designs, Gaultier has shaped the look of fashion over the last 40 years. He has erased the boundaries between cultures but also the sexes, redefining the idea of androgyny or subverting fashion codes.
The exhibition brings together more than 160 cutting-edge couture and ready-to-wear garments including iconic costumes for film and performance from the early 1970’s to the present day.
This includes the infamous conical bra and corsets Madonna wore during her 1990 Blonde Ambition World Tour which are showcased alongside stage and show costumes designed for Beth Ditto, Kylie Minogue and Beyonce.
The exhibition is shown together with footage of catwalk presentations, concerts, music videos, films and dance performances.
Alongside the exhibition there are a few workshops and talks one of which Jean Paul himself will be at. Tickets are available here
Tickets for the exhibition start at £14.50 for adults.
Open from 9 April 2014 till 25 August 2014 at Barbican Museum
We’re really thrilled to announce that House of Fraser are now stocking Anna Scholz Spring Summer collections. After the closure of the plus size departments at Harrods and Selfridges, we are so excited to be included in House of Frasers new endeavour. The plus size boutique has opened in response to the growing demand for more plus size womenswear in the UK. Only available online for now, hopefully this idea will trickle in to some of their high street stores in the near future.
You’ll find some of our classic pieces as well as some adapted colour ways, from both our White and Black Label collections.
Anna’s collection sits alongside the likes of Juna Rose, Chesca, Taking Shape and Marina Rinaldi.
You can view the collection here online.
