King of semi-fetishistic attire: the man who put men in skirts and designed Madonna’s conical bra and corsets for her Blond Ambition World Tore, is joined by one of his favourite models Erin O’Connor. Longtime friends, fashion’s famous enfant terrible once described O’Connor as, ‘quite like art. She is like theatre. She’s an extraordinary inspiration. I should love to be with her everyday.’ The two will be looking back over four decades of cutting edge French style together and recalling his life less ordinary.
Gaultier and O'Connor are speaking as part of the Vogue Festival 2015, in association with Harrods, running for two days only. Ticket to talks and masterclasses include access to all the Royal Collage of Art's foyer activities that will be taking place throughout the festival - makeovers from Bobbie Brown make-up artists and manicures courtesy of Topshop; the Kerastase hair bar; a chance to star on you own souvenir cover with Chanel make-up and accessories amongst many other treats - courtesy of Vogue.
