Jean Paul Gaultier was born in 1952 and started his career with Pierre Cardin in 1970. Gaultier staged his first fashion show in Paris in 1976. Critical and commercial acclaim followed and the brand continued to develop with the launch of menswear in 1984 and haute couture in 1997. Gaultier also designed for Hermes from 2004 to 2011. Throughout his career Gaultier has worked in dance, music and the cinema. His costumes for Madonna’s Blond Ambition tour have left an indelible imprint on the popular culture. His first collaboration in the cinema with Peter Greeneway for The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover was followed by The City of Lost Children by Caro and Jeunet, Fifth Element by Luc Besson and three collaborations with Pedro Almodóvar on Kika, Bad Education and The Skin I live In.
