‘Everywhere in the world – hair is important’
One of Jean Paul Gaultier’s most frequent collaborators, Odile Gilbert is renowned for continuing Gaultier’s couture visions above the neck into her fantastical hair creations in what has come to be known as haute coiffure.
We visit Gilbert in Paris for a tour of her atelier, to learn more about her art – and working with Jean Paul.
‘It’s above the neck that things get really interesting’: download the free app, Gaultier: His Fashion World for more Haute Coiffure as we speak to milliner Stephen Jones and to see more of Gilbert’s work.
Created especially for the exhibition, see more of Odile Gilbert’s creations in The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk until Monday 25 August 2014.
