This Saturday, March 10th, the Textile Arts Council is hosting a lecture by Nathalie Doucet, founder of the Arts of Fashion Foundation, in which she will explore the career of Jean Paul Gaultier. Gaultier’s longevity in the fickle world of fashion is all the more remarkable for the often outrageous and provocative designs he creates. Ms. Doucet credits this to his perpetual creativity, technical rigor, and haute couture mindset which insures artistic perfection. It is the perfect opportunity to brush up on your Gaultier knowledge before his exhibit, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, opens at the De Young Museum on March 24th!
