Gaultier in Dallas: Fashion as art

Posted By on Tue, Feb 7, 2012 at 4:23 PM

Friends who've just gotten back from seeing "The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk" at the Dallas Museum of Art not once but three times suggest that I recommend that you get yourself to Dallas before Feb. 12 to see the show. If you can't get to Dallas, it will show at the deYoung Museum in San Francisco from March 24 to Aug. 19.

Friends say they've never seen crowds like the ones at the Gaultier show. I admit to have a huge weakness for seeing fashion, and since it's unlikely I'll get to Dallas in time, I'll have to content myself with the dresses of Mia Hall now on exhibit in the “UALR Faculty Biennial”:

The dress in the foreground of the photograph (obviously taken before the show was completely hung) is made entirely of stitched paper towels, and the back of the dress opens to find rubber gloves and cleaning supplies — all those thing every bride needs! — in a built in shelf. In the background is "Did Feminism Kill the "Female Art"?" made of crocheted cotton and resin.
