The Fashion Freak Show by Jean-Paul Gautier
It took nothing less than the legendary setting of the Folies Bergeres to complement the genius and creative flair of Jean-Paul Gautier. The cabaret is one of the capital's main venues along with the Moulin Rouge, the Lido and the Crazy Horse. It’s used to welcoming gifted and original artists such as Josephine Baker, for example, who implemented the theatre's unique features to bring their legendary shows to life. The sumptuous red velvet and gilding now lends itself perfectly to the explosion of colour, music and visual effects that was born of the imagination of Jean-Paul Gautier.
"The terrible child" of fashion creates with passion
Madonna's conical bustier, the sailor, the garter belt, all the details that immediately bring Jean-Paul Gautier to mind are there. The show, a succession of song and dance tableaux, retraces the career of the designer from his beginnings to his excesses and his successes. Everything is there, the malice, the benevolence and the artist's exceptional eye. This review is also an ode to difference, to freedom and to the joy of living. You'll discover the designer's codes, his passions and his commitments – all brought to life by the talented singers and dancers. And you will leave feeling transformed, energised and electrified.
The Fashion Freak Show with its cheerfulness, its enthusiasm and its lightness will make you almost forget that it takes many hours of hard work to produce shows of this quality. But, that's all part of the spirit of cabaret and haute couture - it's all Paris!
