Incorporating many of his signatures — there were tailored silhouettes, nude corset dresses with conical breasts and skirt-pants. This was not a nostalgic retrospective but more a tribute to his pioneering vision of fashion.

For his last prêt-a-porter show, the designer cast a wide variety of models of all ages and sizes, some professionals, others not. His brand, now owned by Spanish perfumer Puig, will now only focus on haute couture and scents.

Speaking just after his last moments on the catwalk, Gaultier said, “38 years of prêt-a-porter…so I think there (has been) a lot of clothes, a lot of clothes and maybe not enough people to wear them. So it’s like, let’s leave la place aux jeunes, (let’s give some room to the young (designers).”

Several pictures of his swansong collection can be found on his Twitter page.
