L’Enfant Terrible

Standard

I love a fashion exhibition, as you may have gathered and Jean Paul Gaultier at Barbican turned out to be one of the best I have seen. Freedom to take photographs and sharing the experience with Kate Maison Bentley Style made for a fashionistas day full of fabulousness indeed!

We were treated to a visual feast and much laughter as mannequins and JPG himself smiled and chatted to us……Kate has evidence of this on her blog.

I took around 100 photos so will share some of my favourites…..

Mannequins revolved slowly around like a luxurious luggage carousel with stunning creations celebrating all things Paris…..ooo la la!

Mohican headpieces to die for stirred my soul and the following images reflect my love of feathers…..

Just had to share this. Anthropologie does it again!

This fabulous feathery display is on show in the Regent St store….well it was a couple of weeks ago. In my former life I used to make feather fascinators and these guinea fowl feathers were always my favourite to work with. They take dye very well with the colour filling the white spots.

…anyway…I digress…. Here is the feathery installation in all its glory!

On close inspection it seems that each feather has been pierced with a needle thru the center spine and threaded by hand onto nylon thread. That’s a lot of hours work! I hope you get a chance to see it. And of course while I was in the store I took a few more images from around this palace of joy and inspiration. Enjoy!

And when you’re exhausted take a wash and brush up here! But before you go home walk down to Trafalgar Sq and take a peek at this fine specimen!….
