This multimedia exhibition is organized around seven
themes tracing the influences on Gaultier's development—from the streets of
Paris to the cinema—since he emerged as a designer in the 1970s. It features
approximately 140 haute couture and prêt-à-porter ensembles, from the designer's
earliest to his most recent collections, many of which are displayed on custom
mannequins with interactive faces created by high-definition audiovisual
projections. Accessories, sketches, stage costumes, excerpts from films, and
documentation of runway shows, concerts, and dance performances, as well as
photographs by fashion photographers and contemporary artists who stepped into
Gaultier's world, explore how his avant-garde designs challenge societal,
gender, and aesthetic codes in unexpected ways.
