Upon graduating from Central St Martins, Jean Paul Gaultier moved to Paris to fine-tune his impeccable signature style. Having brought London's fashion scene to its feet throughout the 80s, the French Haute Couture and Prét-a-Porter designer quickly established an irreverent and romantic aesthetic largely based on popular culture and streetwear. Jean Paul Gaultier dresses are beautifully crafted. Structured shapes accentuate the female form while draping, pleats and ruched details offer a more quirky finish. Sheer fabrics, graphic prints and ornate details update traditional looks.
