Montreal.- The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is proud to have developed and produced the first international exhibition devoted to the celebrated couturier Jean Paul Gaultier. “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” will be on view at the museum from June 17th through October 2nd. Gaultier launched his first prêt-à-porter collection in 1976 and founded his own couture house in 1997. Dubbed fashion’s enfant terrible by the press from the time of his first runway shows in the 1970s, Jean Paul Gaultier is indisputably one of the most important fashion designers of recent decades.
