  1. For anyone in the UK, there is a JPG exhibition at the Barbican Apr 9 - Aug 25 called 'The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier, From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk'.
     
  2. It just left New York and it was fabulous! I highly recommend it! There are a few pieces from his Hermes years included.
     
  3. Saw this exhibition in Montreal where it first started. Went back five times. The presentation was amazing. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in fashion. Fascinating to see how JPG develops themes in his designs over many years.

    Was so sad to see the end of his relationship with Hermes. JP certainly grew a lot during the partnership.

    Hermes aquired a substantial percentage of Gaultier's business, never heard what happened to that side of the relationship. Anyone know?
     
  4. Thanks for the head's up! I think he's credited for designing the Jypsiere, my latest obsession. Looking forward to checking it out.

    Yes he did. Still trying to get my own Jypserie. Looking for a 31in swift. Gaultier also designed the Kelly Danse which I have & love dearly.
     
  6. Pleased to hear it is worth a visit and some of his H stuff is included. I like what he did during his time at H and feel that it's all a bit meh now.

  8. Thanks for the heads-up. Sounds like an exhibition worth making the time to visit.
     
  9. I saw it in New York. I've never seen anything like it. Don't miss it!
     
  10. I saw the exhibition in Stockholm last year, it's highly recommended.
     
  11. Went today, what a fantastic exhibition - loved the mannequins with the talking faces. I thought it was really interesting and the workmanship was amazing. Loved that you could get so close to all the couture exhibits. A must-see imo. There's an app too - search for barbican JPG.
