Jean Pual Gaultier Takes Brooklyn

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier:
From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk
The Brooklyn Museum

There are no words to describe how truly incredible these pieces are in person!! Viewing this exhibit while in the midst of my Sew Sexy-Sewalong mindset made me view many things in a completetly different way. And my recent fabric shopping trip (OMG, so much fun chatting and shopping with these three ladies!!) was certainly influenced by it (leather, metallic, print).

Even as I viewed the pieces and snapped these photos, I sensed a theme. I am, clearly, most drawn to the waistline and garments that highlight it. That nipped-in-ness is sexy to me. Whether it is on a metallic leather corset (my FAVORITE PIECE) or a striped, backless tshirt with a floor length train.

Watch the waist.

I’m left feeling SO MUCH after watching this!! Too much to get down in any kind of coherent way. Genius ChildIf you have a little time, maybe whilst sewing or knitting, watch and learn about the life, times and art of this radiant, this genius, child.
