Last Chance: Jean Paul Gaultier in Montreal


This is your last chance to view Jean-Paul Gaultier's exhibit at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts as the exhibit ends this Sunday.

I went back yesterday for a second visit as the place was an absolute madhouse at the opening. And I'm really happy I did.

If you're interested in fashion and are looking for an excuse to come to Montreal this weekend, this exhibit is not to be missed. 

There are several rooms organized by themes: nautical, punk, boudoir, ethnic mix, etc. and the number of collection pieces on display is quite impressive. Also entertaining is the use of  technology to make the mannequins come to life; they are both comical and fascinating.

There are numerous pieces worn by Madonna on her various concert tours, dresses worn by famous actresses in well known films and some renowned fashion photography.
 
Run if you can before it's too late!
