Gaultier Declares His Last Spring 2015 Collection
Gaultier declared earlier this month his spring 2015 collection, would be the last ready-to wear collection! We know he has been in this ready to wear designs from last 30 years but it looks like now Gaultier wants to focus on his lucrative fragrance collection as well as haute couture. There were screaming crowds for Gaultier outside the Rex that proved that he is an icon in fashion field! Gaultier is one time “enfant terrible” and is known well for his playful, out-of-box designs as well as runway shows. He has done lot of experimentations on ramp and has taken risks! He always believed in diversity, as he worked for men and women with all sizes, different colors, as well as ages. These all collections have graced Gaultier’s runways.
It was a shock to the fashion industry as 62 year old icon declared his exit from the ready-to wear field! He said that he is simply tired of the ever-demanding current fashion industry and would prefer to concentrate on his haute couture!
And his send-off was also as magnificent as his work! Inside Paris’ Rex cinema the fashion icon put on a five-part journey via his design-archive and his with –difference imagination. This, all was done using theme called “Miss France” beauty pageant. If to be translated in fashion language, there were asymmetrical suits as well as truncated jackets. The menswear included tuxedo jackets which were blended with jazzy silver colored disco mini-dresses!
One of the parts of the grand Gaultier show was named as “Miss Fashion Editors”. There was a competition to see the top editors, parodied by same looking models! The winner probably was Magdalena Jasek who was lookalike of U.S. Vogue’s Grace Coddington’s double as she entered the stage with red hair, received true applaud with cheers and smile on real Grace’s face!
One more interesting role play was for French Vogue Editor, Emanuelle Alt. Her lookalike character just kept texting on her cell as she walked down the podium! It’s a fact that Alt is often found sitting in the front row but totally engrossed in writing on her iPhone!
