jean paul gaultier

Jean Paul Gaultier, the creator of Madonna’s famous cone bra in the nineties, was once the assistant of French couturiers like Pierre Cardin and Jean Patou. His gender bending designs and theatrical presentations have given him the reputation of being the “enfant terrible” of fashion. He launched his first ready-to-wear collection in 1976 and it wasn’t until 1997 that he launched his couture collection, which often references different religions and cultures. Gaultier is known for using unconventional models on his runway such as older men and full-figured women, a contrary to the beauty idealized by the fashion world. His menswear, which debuted in 1984, often promotes the cross-over between genders like tube tops and skirts for men. In 1999, thirty-five percent the Jean Paul Gaultier label was purchased by Hermès, which led to the appointment of Gaultier at the French house in 2004.
