The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk

April 9th, 2014 2:41 pm


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
