The month of March is abuzz with all things Gaultier! If you find yourself anywhere in or near San Francisco between now and August, do yourself a favor and attend the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the De Young Museum! Gaultier is notorious for putting on the most memorable runway shows of Paris Fashion Week and that creative energy has been encapsulated here for everyone to experience. The exhibit, which features over 140 of Gaultier’s couture, ready to wear, and costume design pieces, features talking mannequins that sing, tell stories about the inspiration behind the pieces that they’re wearing, and more! INSANE! You’ll find that he dressed your favorite musicians and actors on and off screen, and there’s a whole section dedicated to Madonna! Not to mention Gaultier has 35 years of excellence under his (corset) belt, and to see this level of couture craftsmanship up close is really a once-in-a -lifetime experience. It is definitely not to be missed!! More images after the jump….
