The fashion gods continue to bestow upon us intellectually stimulating fare with yet another exhibition gracing the city of Montreal. The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, presented by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is the latest exhibition to showcase the body of work of an esteemed couturier, the first of which was Love, a retrospective of the work of the late Yves Saint Laurent in 2008.

Beginning June 17, museumgoers can marvel at Jean Paul Gaultier’s eccentric, avant-garde creations spanning the course of his 35  years in the business. Some 120 haute couture and ready-to-wear pieces will be on display, alongside costume sketches, video clips, and fashion photography with never-before-published prints by the likes of world-renowned artists Andy Warhol, Bettina Rheims, Paolo Roversi, Mario Testino, David LaChapelle, and Steven Klein, among others.

The exhibition will also explore the works of art, and artistic realms from which Gaultier draws inspiration. Film screenings, lectures, and special events accompany the exhibition throughout. Be sure not to miss, Fashion Forward: Directional Fashion From 1980 to Now, a special lecture by Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of The Museum at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology), New York, and founder/editor of Fashion Theory. The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk runs until October 2, 2011.
