Jean-Paul Gaultier (born on April 24th, 1952 with Bagneux (Hauts-de-Seine) is a Styliste and dressmaker French.
Wire of an accountant and a cashier, Jean-Paul Gaultier has a modest childhood in the Parisian suburbs, with Arcueil. It is his/her grandmother who initiates it with the seam, with very an young age. It is said besides that it made experiments on its teddy bear whereas it was 6 years old. It is in particular in a trunk of his/her grandmother that the small Jean-Paul discovers the corsets, objects which will become the symbols of its future mark.
It is after having seen the film Falbalas , of Jean Becker, which it is decided to make of the seam more than one pastime. It will thus send its sketches to Pierre Cardin. The very same day of its 18 years, it integrates the prestigious designers house, where there will remain a little less than one year before joining Jacques Esterel, then, in 1971 the team of Jean Patou.
In 1974, it returns all the same to Pierre Cardin, who sends it to the Filipino in order to draw the models intended for the US market. It launches its first collection to the Palais of Discovered the to Paris, but they is two years later that it will decide to create its own claw. Its first line does not meet desired success and Jean-Paul Gaultier then thinks of all of giving up. It is the house Kashiyama which, while requiring of him to draw a line of clothing for its mark, will launch really Jean-Paul Gaultier.
The Eighties see the mark growing and being a fulgurating success. Indeed, the creator can be surrounded: he has a vision completely with counter-current of the mode. Thus sees one appearing an “ethical” collection, nearly 20 years before the interest for this movement is not felt. It is 1983 which will hoist Jean-Paul Gaultier towards the top, because she will see the arrival of what will become the " classiques" Gaultier, the such mode Servant boy Toy (“Man object”) and the marine one. The following year, the men see themselves wearing skirts on the podiums and the fashion announces unisexe: the famous conical long-line bra makes its appearance. Madonna will carry from there a specimen at the time of its round Blond Ambition Tower in 1990. A suspicion of provocation will be added consequently to the collections.
Growing success, the orders is done increasingly many and, of needle and thread, the dressmaker is brought to draw costumes for various representations and films. One quotes in particular Kika , of Pedro Almodovar, the Fifth Element . With Antoine de Caunes, it animated the British emission Eurotrash (literally “Europoubelle”).
Jean-Paul Gaultier as has creates amongst other things, of the behaviors for Mylène Farmer in the Années 1990, it will sign the sexy behaviors as the singer carries on the shooting of her album “Anamorphosée” as well as the transparent semi dress of the clip “moment X”.
In 1995, it presented MTV Europe Music Awards has Paris.
From 2001 to 2005, on the initiative of Caroline Loeb who puts them in scene, the French rock group Weepers Circus will wear clothing Jean-Paul Gaultier at the time of his spectacles in French round: this clothing is not new creations for the group but of old collections which fall under the oneiric spirit of the " circus of people who pleurent".
To note an any fraiche collaboration with a young person and talented creative of style, Eddie McEnroe, its goddaughter since the end of June.
