'Love is Love by Jean Paul Gaultier', Montreal Museum of Fine Arts


As a fitting conclusion to the phenomenal world tour by The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, seen by two million visitors in twelve cities from 2011 to 2016, the MMFA is presenting a surprise return by Jean Paul Gaultier. Since the designer has described this record-breaking tour as his “biggest fashion show,” the MMFA is wrapping it up in style, just like Gaultier would do in a fashion show, with the final bouquet: wedding gowns. Featuring some thirty creations – several of which are being displayed for the first time – this celebration of marriage brings together straight, gay, intercultural and interracial unions to celebrate love and diversity. ​ The exhibition is produced by the MMFA, in collaboration with Maison Jean Paul Gaultier. ​ 27 May - 9 October 2017
