Jean Paul Gaultier is serving up practical magic. Yep, that's the same dress in both pictures. Like a bustling wedding gown, it translates from a foxy mini to a slinky maxi in seconds flat. We have witnessed tons of two-in-one dresses, but rarely can you say the execution is good as the...

In 2008 Jean-Paul won two awards at the International Fashion Festival in Hyères (France), which led to the creation of a capsule collection for the French brand 123. He recently founded his own brand, Jean-Paul Lespagnard, and presents his first women's ready-to-wear collection during...

It really was an honour to see Jean Paul Lespagnard's work displayed in the basement of Brussels's Hunting and Collecting store, and even more exciting to get to meet the man himself. I've been following his career and adventures on A Shaded View (it seems Diane is a particular fan) and I...

When attempting to articulate the delightful spectacle of the current Montreal Museum of Fine Arts exhibition on designer Jean Paul Gaultier, I caught myself using several film analogies to try and give the exhibition its due credit. I likened the twists and turns of the thematic organization...

While not everyone can pull off these hyper urban high-fashion-meets-motorcycle-bejeweled-edge looks, we applaud Lespagnard for the dauntless showing of personality and style. Photos: Pressing

And I couldn't miss the chance to see a fun and fantastic show as the ones Jean-Paul Gaultier proposes every season. At the 325 of Rue St. Martin, were he has his atelier and runway hall (a real privilege because not all designers have both on the same place), by 2:30 pm, there were...
