Jean Paul Gaultier: St. Petersburg is a symbol of Russian romanticism for me
The French couturier Jean Paul Gaultier has brought his haute couture Fashion Freak Show to St. Petersburg. Saint-Petersburg TV Channel team has visited the presentation of the project.
‘I came to the city several years ago and was absolutely stunned. For me, it is a symbol of Russian romanticism, of Russian magnificence,’ Jean Paul Gaultier said.
In 1987-1988б the couturier made a Russian collection inspired by the Russian constructivism. It had items with words written in Cyrillic. Some of those clothes will be part of the Fashion Freak Show performance.
Over 200 costumes are used in the show, some of them were made specially for the performance. Everything happening on stage is a story of his childhood dream, Jean Paul Gaultier said.
