It was due time for Paris to host its fashion prodigy. Welcome to the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition, the most visited in the world, held at Paris’s Grand Palais from April to August 2015; it will also visit Montreal, Dallas, San Francisco, Madrid, Rotterdam, Stockholm, New York, London, and Melbourne.

On this occasion, Eurochannel offers a special program produced by Marie Christiane Marek, in which Jean Paul Gaultier reveals what goes on behind the scenes at his exhibition at the Grand Palais. During this private tour, you will fashionably stroll the red carpet during the grand opening and enjoy exclusive interviews with global personalities, including renowned actress Catherine Deneuve and singer Kylie Minogue.

Jean Paul Gaultier, avant-garde fashion designer and pop culture icon, reveals all the secrets and all facets of his exhibition, as well as personal anecdotes. The exhibition traces the career of fashion's enfant terrible since his start in the 1970s until the present day. His creations and their reinterpretations claim their right to be markedly different. The Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition demonstrates the new androgyny he has created, and shows how to revert away from a hyper-sexualized fashion.

This is not a simple retrospective of Gaultier’s work but an entire creation. Around 175 accessorized garments of high fashion and prêt-à-porter are exhibited alongside fashion photographs, sketches, stage costumes, film clips, and much more. Enjoy fashion as you’ve never seen it before!
