Jean Paul Gaultier is the quintessential « enfant terrible » of French fashion and one of the industry’s most flamboyant characters. His bold and often irreverent styles -think Madonna's cone bra from the 1990 Blonde Ambition World Tour, have earned him the status of fashion’s icon.

Along the first major exhibition devoted to the celebrated French couturier, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, initiated, produced and toured by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in collaboration with Maison Jean Paul Gaultier, this compilation celebrates the “music and fashion muses” of this provocative designer, who began as an assistant with no formal training and has risen to the rank one of contemporary fashion most influential designer. His Parisian charm and tongue-in-cheek witticisms are reflected in this selection of songs he personally handpicked, from artists and muses including Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Catherine Deneuve, Boy George and Grace Jones - a selection which is as full of fantasy as it is of classical poise.

Presented until August 3rd, 2015 at Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais in Paris, this historical exhibition has already welcomed more than 1,6 million visitors around the globe, from Montreal to Paris, but also Dallas, San Francisco, Madrid, Rotterdam, Stockholm, New York, London & Melbourne. The next venue is at Munich’s Kunsthalle from next September 17th.
