Bonjour Monsieur JPG
Once in a life time I just wish that I could go to see one of my favorite designer show or collections somewhere in the world. Actually, I like almost all of them from A-Zac Posen. In early of December, I finally have a 'great' chance to see one, and the best part is, it's Jean Paul Gaultier, the number one of my favorite designer.
The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk start showing in Melbourne at The National Gallery of Victoria during mid-October while I was somewhere in Sydney. I realized there's JPG in the city when I saw the huge billboard on my way in Melbourne Airport while transiting to Sydney. I've heard about the exhibition when it was showing in New York. I told myself then that it's gonna be the first only thing I would do and see if I come back to the city. Finally, I made it.
The moment was like a fashion dream comes true for me because one, I only see JPG collections from Style.com since I was a teenager.Two, JPG will only produce haute couture collections (the new has announced during September last year),so it worth to see his previous ready to wear collections.
Besides,I totally agree to use the name of this exhibition as the fashion world. I didn't know that there's seven rooms for this exhibition (I was walking around the first room about two hours. I realized that it has another rooms when I tried to find the exit). Anyway, since you step into the exhibition hall there's fake Jean Paul Gaultier in 3D model speaking both English, and French. "Sue my clothes" he claimed if you don't understand his English accent. I love this part, and it take me quite awhile to capture it. The collections in those rooms (The Odyssey, The Boudoir,Punk Can Can, Skin Deep, Metropolis, Urban Jungle,and Muses) are beyond creativity, full of fantasy, extremely avant-garde, and incredible in his signature details. I've seen and learnt so much things from this. It was such a great moment, and I couldn't forget :)
