it's always the badly dressed people who are the most interesting.

Yesterday, my mom and I traveled to Montreal to see "The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk" at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. It was a long day - five hours on the train each way - but definitely a great experience. The exhibit was truly beautiful. It was amazing to see Jean Paul Gaultier's couture designs up close and personal! Completely overwhelming!

Here are some of my photos from the trip, and a few of my favourite designs from the exhibit. (My personal favourite is the second last photo, the dress with an animal pelt made up entirely of beading. Stunning!)












Any favourites? What do you think of Jean Paul Gaultier's work?

  6. Oh my god, girl, you are so lucky! I love Jean-Paul Gaultier, he's one of my all-time favourite designers… these pictures are just breathtaking, I wish I could see this exposition! I wish I had seen Alexander McQueen's Savage Beauty too.
