Last week, my friend Jackie informed me that I was going
to be her plus one to La Grande Fête.
La Grande Fête, basically, is going to be a fabulous party
that will celebrate the designer' s first major exhibition.
Since he has been around for years,
I was actually shocked when I read that this was his first major exhibition,
but regardless, I cannot wait to see his 35- year body of work!
Jean Paul Gaultier describes his exhibition as,
"not a stuffy retrospective," with the hopes to make people,
"understand that beauty can be found everywhere; even in the least expected places
and that there is not one kind of beauty, but many kinds."
I am so excited to view "Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk,"
because the installations are going to be out of this world.
As I was reading the SF Chronicle, I was slowing freaking out
about the multitude of technological effects that will be taking place.
I'm especially excited about the unique mannequins that will be at the show-
mannequins that will come alive via audiovisual projections:
what a trip.
It also will include 120 haute couture and pret-a-porter designs,
covering a huge time lapse (1970s- 2010).
I cannot believe I am going to be able to see it a day before its official opening!
Ek, must figure out an outfit ASAP!
I cannot wait to write about the actual experience!
TGIF has a whole new meaning this week.
P.S. The pictures in this post are some of my favorite looks
from John Paul Gaultier's Spring 2012 Couture collection.
