Jean Paul Gaultier at the NGV

Posted on Updated on

The Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition is on it’s last days, so if you haven’t had a chance, make sure you head down to the National Gallery of Victoria and check it out.

I took an hour out of my work day to see it, and it wasn’t long enough. But if, like me, an hour is all you’ve got it’s still worth the trip.

There are 7 rooms filled with over a hundred pieces. Each room is themed and the pieces are modelled in a way that allow the audience to see the movements of the fabrics and the theme of each outfit. Some models have talking and singing faces projected onto them. Each room, whilst unique, is as exciting as the last.

Here are a few of my favourite pieces:

Incase I haven’t got you swooning enough over his beautiful pieces, what about his beautiful words about the piece he made for Beth Ditto.

And whilst I loved the exhibition and I would recommend it to everyone, there will always be that one piece I don’t understand- for example this loofah!
