JEAN-PAUL WAVES GOODBYE TO RTW

Last Saturday, after 38 years, Jean-Paul Gaultier presented his last Ready-To-Wear collection under his own label.  The venerable designer announced earlier in September he would be semi-retiring – preferring to concentrate on his Haute Couture line.  Gaultier is known for his spectacular fashion presentations and this was no exception – nearly three times the length of the average runway presentation, it was staged as a beauty pageant with contestants like “Miss Metro,” “Miss Vintage,” and “Miss Tour de France.”

Butch Blum will continue to carry the Jean-Paul Gaultier Soleil line – produced in Italy by the Fuzzi factory – which features original fabric designs by Gaultier.
