The exhibition

In the first major exhibition devoted to the celebrated French couturier, we invite you to explore Jean Paul Gaultier's fashion world. Shaping the look of fashion over the last 40 years, his reputation for witty and daring designs and a ceaseless interest in society, identity and a beauty borne of difference has earned him a place in fashion history.

This theatrically-staged exhibition brings together more than 165 cutting-edge couture and ready-to-wear garments featuring iconic costumes from the early 1970s to the present day including Madonna’s infamous conical bra and corsets, stage costumes designed for Kylie Minogue and pieces from the films of Pedro Almodóvar in a dynamic exhibition of catwalk presentations, concerts, music videos, film and dance performances.

The exhibition runs from 9 April–25 August in the Art Gallery.
