If you are a fashionista and visited Melbourne between 17th October 2014 and 8th February 2015 without visiting the National Gallery of Victoria you missed out on an amazing exhibition.

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier ‘From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk’

Gaultier, a French designer, is known for his revolutionary and avant garde designs such as the iconic stage costumes Madonna wore for her 1990 Blond Ambition tour. The exhibition features clothes Gaultier created in 1971 to more recent pieces from both his ready to wear and haute couture collections. Not sure that some of these are ‘ready to wear!!

Having the chance to see beautiful hand crafted haute couture pieces when I was visiting Melbourne was an opportunity that I was not going to miss!
