Vintage Jean Paul Gaultier Orange and Peach Silk Dress

Vintage Jean Paul Gaultier Orange and Peach Silk Dress


Handmade item

Vintage from the 1980s

This 100 % silk dress was created by enfant terrible (enfant terrible; French: "unruly child" is a French expression, traditionally referring to a child who is terrifyingly candid by saying embarrassing things to parents or others. However, the expression has drawn multiple usage in careers of art, fashion, music, and other creative arts. In these careers, it implies a successful "genius" who is very unorthodox, striking, and in some cases, offensive, or rebellious), Jean Paul Gaultier, French haute couture and prêt-à-porter fashion designer.  

Gaultier became infamous for the sculptured costumes for Madonna during the nineties, starting with her infamous cone bra for her 1990 Blond Ambition World Tour, and designed the wardrobe for her 2006 Confessions Tour. It catapulted his career and Gaultier fanned the flames of notoriety by using unconventional models for his exhibitions, like older men and full-figured women, pierced and heavily tattooed models, and by playing with traditional gender roles in the shows. This earned him both criticism and enormous popularity.

This dress appears tame yet it has much of the Gaultier uniqueness that one hopes for from such a designer. Made from 100% silk, a classic shirtdress with metal snaps and beautiful fabric that must be closely inspected! All in gorgeous tones of soft oranges, peaches and soft yellows.
