The Fashion World of Jean-Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk
October 25–February 23, 2014
The Brooklyn Museum is the only East Coast venue to present The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, the first international exhibit of Gaultier's work. Pieces from Gaultier's recent runway shows are among those items not seen in other museums that hosted this exhibit. Made up of six thematic sections, From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk moves from fashion to pop culture with its inclusion of film, dance, and concert costumes including Madonna's iconic bra and corsets from the 1990 Blonde Ambition World Tour and Gaultier's appearances in Eurotrash and Absolutely Fabulous.
