"My clothes are, in a way, the best passport to make my ideas travel" > Exhibition Jean Paul Gaultier From A to Z, France Pavilion, EXPO2020 in Dubai, 2022 > Features unpublished and iconic images by some of the greatest contemporary fashion photographers and artists > By acclaimed fashion writer and curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot Jean Paul Gaultier From A to Z is a dazzling review of more than five decades of the 'enfant terrible' of French fashion. Through iconic pieces such as Madonna's corsets and Kylie Minogue's stage costumes, the Gaultier wardrobe is displayed from A to Z, examining its singular aesthetic from all angles while exploring its different influences: from cinema to dance, from Frida Kahlo to sailors. Presenting avant-garde fashion imbued with humanism, Gaultier challenged, reinterpreted and transgressed not only the codes of haute couture and ready-to-wear, but also - with humour - those of our society, creating an inclusive fashion accompanied by a social message made of pluralistic beauties. The street, one of the main inspirations for his prophetic vision of society celebrating diversity and difference, is for him a universe where interbreeding and multiculturalism, androgyny and metamorphoses, women of power and men-objects cross, inspiring the unique creations through the exceptional know-how of the haute couture workshops of his Maison de couture. Whether it is cinema or men wearing skirts, punks or Parisiennes, animals or nature, the sources of inspiration are endless and inexhaustible. Jean Paul Gaultier From A to Z is both a timely tribute to - as well as an essential review of - one of fashion's truly greats.
