|Ok, so apparently JPG is known for his crazy fashion stuff...and stripes.|
In terms of the fashion world, I'm the first to admit that I pretty much know nothing. Nonetheless, in the spirit of openness, I went to the JPG Exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal. It was the second last day of the exhibit and there was a an hour line-up to get in. At least I now understand that fashion shows are meant as art and not really clothing. Apparently JPG paid the museum to showcase his work and contribution to the arts. A little bit of blowing his own horn but then again, I imagine that's what fashion designers are all about.
Here are some interesting pieces of work below. First, Madonna's pointy bra and some concept art by JPG.
There was a cool concept on display in which the mannequins had a face projected on it. It made the mannequins look freaky and robotic. See the video for what I mean, I tell you it's worth the few seconds:
This is really cool. At first it just looks like some sort of leopard dress but take a closer look. 1,060 hours to create!
