Jean-Paul Gaultier at the Grand Palais

Jean-Paul Gaultier is one of the most inspirational and unconventional fashion designers of our time. I just spent an exciting afternoon at a dazzling retrospective of his life and work at the Grand Palais in the 1st Arrondissement. After personally following his extraordinary career, I was able to see his work covering over 40 years. I really did not need another great reason to be in Paris this Spring, but this is very special. The exhibit includes so many of his famous signature pieces. There is so much to see including his infamous use of the simple sailor stripe and other Paris cliche’s, punk and street wear and the cone bra and corsets that Madonna wore during her 1990 Blonde Ambition World Tour.

Rather than being a static exhibit of clothing, it is filled with color, movement, sound and light thanks to some very clever design and lots of digital technology. This exhibit is at the Grand Palais until August 3rd.
