Tickets for Jean-Paul Gaultier show auction on Charitybuzz raised 2600 US$ for our education center!
Latest news: this auction has now ended and raised 2600 US$ for our education center!
The second auction that we organize together with Charitybuzz to raise funds for our education center IHAEC was donated by no other than legendary French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, the last of the living couturiers. When you bid on this auction you have the chance to attend his haute couture show for S/S 2013, that will take place in January 2013 in Paris (exact date and location still to be announced). Gaultier's fashion shows are always breathtaking and attended by a lot of celebrities and if you're not a client or member of the fashion press, you'd never get to see a haute couture show of this level live.
From men in skirts to Madonna's infamous conical bras, Jean Paul Gaultier's innovations have always pushed the conventional boundaries of fashion. In 1970, Pierre Cardin hired the 18-year-old, who had no formal training, after he received some promising sketches in the mail from him. Six years later, Gaultier launched his womenswear collection in Paris.
With his spiky bleached-blond hair and MTV-generation antics, he's cultivated a flamboyant public persona that was magnified when he co-hosted the nonsensical show Eurotrash in the nineties. Theatrics aside, Gaultier is credited with pioneering innerwear as outerwear, promoting ethnic and gender-bending dress, and popularizing the use of stretch fabrics in his signature skintight bodysuits. In addition to womenswear, the house produces menswear, accessories, fragrances, and, since 1997, haute couture, which may just be the designer's finest contribution to fashion. Heralded by the press as the savior of the dying trade and the last French couturier, Gaultier wowed the industry with the imaginative and technical prowess of his fantastical designs.
