COVERAGE

Jean Paul Gaultier has been one of the biggest names in fashion for decades. Launching his brand in 1982, he almost immediately became known as the "enfant terrible" of fashion. Gaultier was exploring trends and ideas that many others found absurd at the time. Some of these trends include skirts for men, sheer "tattoo" tops, and cone bras. He uses his sense of humor to bring up very real subliminal messages, including gender attitudes, social values, and cultural morality.
