A touring retrospective, 'The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk' premiered at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts last year, has since travelled to the Dallas Museum of Art and is now showing at the de Young Museum in San Francisco.

The exhibition features 140 outfits and a plethora of campaign material and documents covering the sweep of Gaultier's career as a couturier and designer. In September it will touch down in Madrid, and next year will move on to Rotterdam and Stockholm.
