Love is love by Jean Paul Gaultier

May 27 to October 9, 2017

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.
