If you have an evening spare or more to the point – make sure you have an evening free.
Not far from the London’s city banking area is the Barbican. A huge grey sprawling range of buildings holds a great mix of gems inside.
At the moment it holds a huge amazing exhibition of Jean Paul Gaultier’s beautiful, striking, clever and witty fashion. Open Sunday – weds 10am-6pm, Thurs-Sat 10am-9pm. (perfect for a bank holiday – open 12pm-8pm!)
The exhibit’s layout and displays reflect his personality and design asethetics. The mannequins have projected faces onto them – sometimes they sing or just blink! You even get Jean Paul Gaultier welcoming you to the exhibit!
It was so great to see it in real life. His works have been in so many different films, programmes and magazines. The wall of screens reminds you of some of the film moments.
The exhibition finishes 25th August 2014 and might just quench your fashion thirst until the McQueen exhibit roles into town until next year!
