JEAN PAUL GAULTIER AT NGV

I finally saw The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier at the NGV in Melbourne. So amazing!! I knew I would like this show but it really did blow me away. So creative and inspirational with freakishly amazing workmanship and details. Loved the kooky talking mannequins too. I forgot my camera but found these pics online so I can share some of his subversive amazingness. It's hard to post only a few pics, the show is huge! If you are in Melbourne go before it ends Feb 8th 2015.
