The Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria was an exhibition I was fortunate enough to have the time to visit while in Melbourne. The actual exhibition space was very busy but I was still able to make good use of my time and get round the whole exhibition.
The fashions were certainly startling but that was to be expected, what I had not expected was the wide range of materials with which he made his fashions. There was a dress that had been made from film strips and another which was made entirely of ribbon.
Again it was an exhibition that was well worth the visit. The amazing textiles that were used to create the fashions were mind boggling.
