Item description for Jean Paul Gaultier (Memoirs) by Farid Chenoune...
Since his late-1970s debut, Jean-Paul Gaultier has never ceased to astonish and outrage with his inventiveness and playful experimentation with the bizarre. Known for his feats of style inspired by the streets of Paris and London--the most infamous being Madonna's much publicized cone-shaped bustier--fashion's enfant terrible is a fixture in the world of haute couture, brazenly overturning traditional definitions of the beautiful and the ugly, the elegant and the vulgar.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jean Paul Gaultier (Memoirs)?
A brief but interesting look at the world of Gaultier May 6, 2001
As with the other books in the Universe of Fashion series, the Gaultier edition is mainly a photo look-book into the world of the designer. There is a short introduction about Gaultier, as well as a timeline of major events and collections in Gaultier's career. The photos used in the book are a good representation of Gaultier's clothing from his entire career, highlighting key pieces, and often showing them in interesting ways (a women's velvet cone bra dress is worn by male model Tanel in one photo for example). A great book for any Gaultier or fashion afficionado.
