|Jean Paul Gaultier himself|
In the early seventies Jean Paul Gaultier began his career as an’ enfant terrible’ of the fashion world and developed himself as a major couturier. I visited the expo in the Kunstal in Rotterdam, together with Eline (and many others too…!).

Ongelofelijk wat die man bedacht en gemaakt heeft. Verwonderd bekeken we z’n creaties, vaak met onze neus er bovenop om alle details van dichtbij te bekijken. Wat een oneindige fantasie en inventiviteit, technisch vernuft en ondenkbare combinaties komen samen in al zijn creaties. Geen wonder dat wij ons al tijdens onze modeacademie tijd door hem lieten inspireren.
Incredible what that man has designed and made. We were astonished by all his creations and looked at them from very close to study all the details. Such endless fantasy and inventiveness, technical wonders and unthinkable combinations are combined in all his creations. No wonder we were already inspired way back in our fashionschool-period.
|I just love the combinations of all the folklore|
The figurines that wore the designs were also very special: the faces came alive with moving projections, as if they came alive and would walk away that instant. (I would love to show this in a movie, but I haven’t figured out yet how that works…). Room after room were filled with his creations and designs, combined with movies and photo’s of all the plays and motionpictures were he contributed his designs to. A beautiful homage for this special designer.
