JPG attended the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ opening of The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk. One of the first international exhibition devoted to the couture extraordinaire. Absolutely adore his work. He seems to turn everything […]

Yikes…and yikes! I haven’t added anything to my blog in over a month! Working full time plus one hellish semester left me little time to find anything (much less write about) to my blog.

This summer campaign continues the series […]


Couture Shock

21Apr10

Some of the greatest children’s books were written by Brothers Grimm and Lewis Carrol. The Brothers Grimm wrote extraordinary tales such as Snow White, Cinderella, and the Frog Prince ( forget the Disney versions as the actual tales were much darker). And of course, Lewis Carrol wrote Alice in Wonderland. It is no wonder why […]
