A few images from “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk”. The exhibit ended Sunday at the Brooklyn Museum. Glad I had a chance to see this display before it was taken down.
There was the frenzy that typically comes on the last day of a renown fashion designer’s exhibit, e.g., crowds, cameras galore, snail’s pace movement from one showroom to the next. I snapped a few pictures then decided (experiencing one of those combined moments of awakening and annoyance) to put my camera away, pay heed, and take in the art.

Gualtier, a master of tailoring, was influence by all things visual including films.
Polaroids! Oh, and Madonna is photographed in the top and bottom images to the far left. Remember her cone bras days? It all started with Gaultier’s childhood teddy bear, Nana.

She looked back as well as she could; but it was all confusion. She had taken up the idea, she supposed and made everything bend to it.
