Synopsis

"I like looking at things from a different angle and questioning what is expected."
- Jean Paul Gaultier

This book tracks the stellar career of maverick designer Jean Paul Gaultier from his first show in Paris in 1976, when he challenged the current ideals of beauty and promoted a style of fashion which embraced ethnic diversity and models of all shapes and sizes. 

Seen as an enfant terrible when he first burst on to the fashion scene, his titillating, provocative designs embrace corset dresses, conical bustiers, biker jackets paired with ballet tutus and skirts for men, along with classic fashion staples such as beautifully cut smoking jackets and trench coats. By the turn of this century he had put Madonna in corsets for her Blonde Ambition tour, dressed celebrities for the red carpet and moved seamlessly between mainstream popular culture (co-hosting the outré British TV show Eurotrash and designing award-winning film costumes for Luc Besson and Pedro Almodovar) while also launching his own seriously successful haute couture label - an addition to a burgeoning empire of ready-to-wear, perfume and kidswear.

With stunning images captured in the pages of Vogue by photographers like Mario Testino and Lord Snowdon, Vogue on Jean Paul Gaultier shows how his avant-garde fashion creations and cutting-edge designs revealed Gaultier's unerring instinct for how women want to dress.

About the Publisher

Quadrille Publishing

Quadrille Publishing

It was in 1994 that Quadrille Publishing announced itself to the world, a team of four with a dream: the creation of a small list of books that would innovate in every way, editorial, design, production and sales, stay in print for many years, and be sold the world over. Two whole (long) decades later, how the world has changed, yet our goal remains. Our new list reflects these aims. Our craft list is heralded by our second The Great British Sewing Bee TV tie-in book, Sew Your Own Wardrobe, packed wtih desirable projects and packaged with five full-size pattern sheets - a first for a TV tie-in. Love at First Stitch by Tilly Walnes, herself a contestant in the first The Great British Sewing Bee, is a brilliant introduction to the world of sewing, full of glorious must-have garments and already attracting wide interest, The Cath Kidston Sewing Book is a dazzling follow up to the most successful craft book ever in the UK, Sew!
