Jean Paul Gaultier

One has to admire a person who dances to the beat of his own drum and Jean Paul Gaultier is such a fashion designer. He is a well-known French fashion designer who experimented with his designs, creating a blend of wearable and trendy attires. What makes him stand out of others is his creations and skillful combination of hues, such as parrot green with yellow or purple with tobacco brown and the fusion of leather and lace.

Ignoring the trend convention of the season, he opted to go the ethnic route. In the Paris fashion week 2011, Jean Paul Gaultier sent his haute couture collection down which was filled with light-hearted mo-hawks, theatrics, animated models and everything that one would expect from Gaultier. His designs are always unusual and controversial. Gaultier is also famous for nautical outfits. No Gaultier couture show is complete without the requisite nautical outfit. By now, it has become a tradition for Gaultier to entertain his guests. Sometimes, we take fashion too seriously and each season Jean Paul Gaultier never fails to make us laugh.
