Calling all SF dwellers!  The de Young Museum is currently showcasing an exhibit called The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk. 

The Odyssey

The de Young describes the exhibit thusly:

“This dynamic, multimedia exhibition will include 140 haute couture and prêt-à-porter designs created between the mid-1970s and 2010, along with numerous sketches, archival documents, fashion photographs, and video clips that spotlight Gaultier’s collaborations with filmmakers, choreographers, and musicians, most notably Madonna. For this presentation, Gaultier partnered with the Montreal-based theater company Ubu Compagnie de Création in the design of 30 animated mannequins who talk and sing in playful and poetic vignettes.”
