Must See

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier At the Brooklyn Museum

The only East Coast showing of this first ever international exhibition dedicated to the groundbreaking French couturier.

It’s a multimedia thing organized around the seven themes of Gaultier’s development since he emerged as a designer in the 1970s.

You’ll see 140 or so haute couture and prêt-à-porter ensembles, many on high tech mannequins with high-definition AV “faces” you have to see to believe.

What else? Lots of accessories, sketches, stage costumes, excerpts from films, and documentation of runway shows, concerts, and dance performances, as well as visual art from the photographers and artists who stepped into Gaultier’s world.

It’s all fascinating, especially if you’re as interested in beautiful clothing as we are here at Fashion Award Cleaners. The show closes on February 23. Ticket info here: Purchase Tickets
