Jean Paul Gaultier

The San Francisco De Young Museum is currently host to an exhibition of Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture, which is most spectacular in both creativity and execution. Gaultier’s creative genius as a fashion designer started at an early age where he was influenced by strong women including his mother and grandmother and developed a fascination with women’s corsets. Gaultier has no formal training as a designer and became a protege’ of Pierre Cardin in 1970 after sending sketches of this ideas. He became famous through his transcendence of traditional gender roles which includes the corset and his signature conical breasts. The exhibition features runway models with holographic faces that move, talk, blink and talk to you as you move by them, it is a must see for any fashionista.
