Jean Paul Gautier exhibition in London until August 25th
 
http://www.barbican.org.uk/artgaller...l.asp?ID=14772

For those of you in London until the 25th August, and interested in fashion, I highly recommend this exhibition. The workmanship on the couture pieces is simply stunning. I was surprised at how many pieces in the exhibition – far more than expected.

I took some photos with my iPad (link attached), not great, as I could not use the flash, but it will give you some idea of the works.

Hi Ger,

Talk of Jean Paul always makes me think of a programme called "Eurotrash" that used to be on TV on the early days of Channel 4; it frequently featured J-P wearing a fetching kilt!

BTW your link is not working for me, which is a shame as I'd like to see your snaps.

Hi annhig, does this link work?

Yes, there are is a video section where they mention Eurotrash.

Saw this in San Francisco awhile ago and it is loads of fun. I really enjoyed it.

Leely2 Aug 9th, 2014 11:59 AM

p.s. Ger, I was unable to see your photos.

OReilly Aug 9th, 2014 12:06 PM

It sure does! Thanks for persevering and sharing your photos. If only I were in London. I'd revisit this exhibition.

Thanks Leely2 for persevering with my inaptitude with such a simple task :)

Best regards Ger

yes it worked. Thanks Ger.

not entirely my tasse de the if I'm honest but still very interesting; I'd forgotten all about Eurostrash so thanks for the reminder!
