Fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit titled “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” will be at the Brooklyn Museum in New York from October 25, 2013 to February 23, 2014.

It also includes accessories, sketches, stage costumes, excerpts from films, videos from runway shows, concerts and dance performances, as well as photographs by fashion photographers and contemporary artists who have worked with the designer.
French couturier Jean Paul Gaultier is known for his avant-garde designs as well as his superbly crafted and detailed garments.
The exhibition is organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in collaboration with Maison Jean Paul Gaultier, Paris and curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot of the MMFA.
