If you are going to be in San Francisco before August 19, make sure you visit “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” at the Herbst Exhibition Galleries of de Young Museum.
The entrance to de Young
Provocative and dynamic, it showcases Gaultier’s 140 haute couture and prêt-à-porter designs, along with photos, sketches and video clips related to the iconic designer’s work. Thirty talking and singing mannequins were designed especially for this show – how amazing is that? Jesse and I had the chance to see the “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier” last month and snap some photos – check out our virtual photo tour below!

Jean Paul Gaultier’s projected image on the face of a life-size mannequin greets all guests with a special welcome. Mind blowing!
Is she looking at me? I love the rows and rows of black and white feathers and the signature JPG stripe
