Jean Paul Gaultier
This collection drew lots of media attention and was not always understood: some saw it as mockery, when in fact Jean Paul Gaultier intended it as a tribute to a community, the proof that beauty is everywhere and that inspiration knows no taboos. Struck by the unconscious stylishness of Orthodox Jews, Gaultier decided to make it the starting point for a ready-to-wear collection for women. In traditional Judaism it is forbidden for women to wear men's clothing, but these are no longer traditional garments: the designer has turned the trousers into a dress, keeping only the style of the silhouettes that originally inspired him.
