Jean-Paul Gaultier feted the pop and style icons of the 1980s yesterday at Paris Fashion Week with a joyful collection for Spring/Summer 2013.
From Madonna to Michael Jackson, Grace Jones to Sade - he said that they have influenced "his fashion". "Just because there's an economic crisis, doesn't mean we all have to act all miserable, and show depressing clothes," the designer joked with reporters after the show. "Why should it all be about minimalism? There's room for joy as well."
