Jean Paul Gaultier

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier made its ninth worldwide stop in Melbourne over the summer. After months of hearing nothing but amazing things, I finally managed to head to the exhibition for the final weekend... probably the one busiest yet! 
Surprisingly the NGV encouraged visitors to share images on social media. So no need to take sneaky photographs. 

The iconic corsets and cone bras. Below worn by Madonna on her Blonde Ambition tour in 1990.

The Mermaids Collection

Gold sequin jumpsuit from the 2008 couture collection, worn by Beyonce at The Fashion Rocks event in New York.

. . . the raw side of punk, with its Mohawk haircuts, almost tribal makeup, allusions to sex, torn fishnet stockings, black, kilts, bondage straps, mixing of genders and materials—all that spoke to me, suiting me much better than some of the ossified conventions of the couture.”
