2017 Fashion: Jean Paul Gaultier (Spring Couture)

Spread the love

Jean Paul Gaultier grew up in a Paris suburb. His father was an accountant and his mother, a clerk.

It was the 65-year-old’s maternal grandmother Mary Garrabe, who tickled his fancy for fashion.

He never attended classes to become a fashion designer but instead, he was able to make rough sketches for renowned couture designers in Paris at a tender age.

His first meeting with Pierre Cardin was impressive, so he hired Gaultier as an assistant in 1970.

He [Gaultier] suffered some losses in his career, including his boyfriend and business partner Francis Menuge, who died of AIDS-related causes.

Gaultier became the creative director of Hermès from 2003 to 2010 after Martin Margiela vacated the position.
