Welcoming Jean Paul Gaultier…A Preface

Les Vierges Collection, Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2007 P.Stable/Jean Paul Gaultier

Well here we are, the eve of the month, that for so many fashion gurus and queens , have  planed their whole year around. In fact, to the small group of us that heard this was in the works, the wait spans way more than just a mere year. As Dallasonians, we are all very proud and honored to have on our hands, a celebration of fashion, that  will officially solidify us among  one of the largest Fashion capitals. As the Countdown begins in our humble and a tad holier than thou city, we celebrate the person behind some of the most provocative and evocative looks that shook Pop Culture to its very core.

Unlike that last  celebrated and unprecedented  Exhibit of our time, in New York “this couturier is still living”. In fact our blessed viewing, is set to rival that very exhibit.

As every  major and non major publication in our City are servicing with their own words, they  all cant help but serve  as a master Preface  to a stage being set, that come November 13th every local fashionista  will conclave at The Dallas Museum of Art, to pay our living respects to the Master of Couture.

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, will be the biggest thing in our parts. The month of November will undoubtably be a busy month for the Dallas social scene. Much like the couturier himself, Dallas will be transformed into a social fashion world all focused on the collective works of man who embodied Pop culture.

Jean Paul Gaultier,  has dressed many of the worlds leading women and men, in fact the pieces that have been worn by our celebrated icons have become more recognizable than the people who embodied them. Such as the Blonde Ambition Tour Costumes, who can forget  Madonna’s array of Gaultier creations, truth be told, his creations gave the world the most recognizable and iconic image of Madonna, that practically defined her shock value career.

The history of his genius goes far beyond words, the history of this man will for sure be well represented at The Dallas Museum of Art, however among  the local press and the statements of  the curators of the Montreal Museum of art,  as well as the Dallas Museum of Art , all have stated  that rather than just a  retrospect of career, this is an exhibition of contemporary Art through fashion. In fact the November issue of Arts & Culture | Dallas Ft. Worth  highlights the long debate the world has had between fashion vs. art and in  this case, fashion as art.  It’s Very thrilling to see fashion play out in this manner, this very concept and debate is always fuel to artistic intellect, it all  makes  for a sure hit in the world of art and fashion, and says so much about our beloved city which is playing host  to an epic exhibit. The Dallas Museum of Arts’ Exhibit on Gauliter is buzzing so much, that in fact it may be dwarfing  yet another Epic and only U.S. presentation, CARAVAGGIO And His Followers in Rome at The Kembell Art Museum, This stands be such a major moment in DFW Art for sure, Gaultier and Caravaggio  in the same metro, WOW, is the only fitting word.
