Fashionable Art at the DMA

It's finally time for the The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk opening the DMA November 13, 2011 and running through February 12, 2012. General admission for adults is $20- definitely a steal given all the fashion that will be on display from this iconic designer, getting my tickets now!

Excerpt from the website:
The exhibition—organized along six different thematic sections tracing the influences, from the streets of Paris to the world of science fiction, that have marked the couturier’s creative development, “The Odyssey of Jean Paul Gaultier,” “The Boudoir,” “Skin Deep,” “Punk Cancan,” “Urban Jungle,” and “Metropolis” —features approximately 130 ensembles from the designer’s couture collections, as well as from his prêt-à-porter line, along with their accessories. Created between 1976 and 2010, the majority of these pieces have never been exhibited. Sketches, stage costumes, and excerpts from films, runway shows, concerts, dance performances, and televised interviews will all provide a look at the couturier’s world and will explore how his avant-garde fashions challenged societal and aesthetic codes in unexpected, and often humorous, ways. Fashion photography will also be a major focus of attention, thanks to loans of, in many cases, never-before-seen prints from renowned contemporary photographers and artists.
