Montreal . et . Jean . Paul . Gaultier

If my post on Tuesday was a bit lacking of photos, the number of photos that I took yesterday (429) will make up for it. On top of it being a lovely day to walk around the city, we took in the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts at night.

Plus, best surprise of all surprises - yesterday was the start of the Montreal Festival of Fashion and Design, which kicked off with... A Jean Paul Gaultier runway show!!

Getting to see the show meant standing in a very large, very cramped group of people for some time, but good gravy it was worth it. They walked pieces from the couture collections, as well as Fall 2011/12 menswear, and the Fall 2011/12 women's RTW line. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.

I'll have to post photos in batches, so as not to go too crazy all at once though.

The top photos were from the first room of the exhibit. Many of the mannequins throughout had faces projected on them. All of the faces moved (a lot or a little) and some of the mannequins were also speaking or singing. Loved it.

It looks amazing! I did a midnight tour of Savage Beauty, the Alexander McQueen exhibit, last night at the Met. Isn't fashion as art just amazing?
