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…..
Exquisite corsets, sublime silhouettes…..
And of course Jean Paul’s sense of playfulness and fun throughout….
Thanks Jean Paul, it was such fun!
Found these in amongst a pile of flower prints in the delightful Snoopers Paradise in Brighton. A friend had given me an enchanting framed print of Paris and this led to my idea of creating a Paris feature wall in my home. I had fun finding frames in charity shops and distressed each one to give a vintage look overall. C,est magnifique!
