Festival Mode et Design Montreal kicked off properly for both myself and the public with the final late night catwalk show on Wednesday evening.

The Jean Paul Gaultier show Bourgeoises Sans Age was put together to tie in with his first major retrospective, which is currently being hosted at the Musee de Beaux-Arts de Montreal, and which is continuing until October 2nd 2011. The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk is a fantastic exhibition that I highly recommend visiting, but more on that later.

The catwalk show featured outfits from his latest menswear collection set to a James Bond soundtrack, alongside his most recent womenswear collection for A/W 2011: elegant wool two pieces worn by girls with grey up dos who tossed off bits of clothing as they strode down the catwalk to an instrumental homage to Amy Winehouse.

But the highlight was surely a crowd-pleasing selection of the most famous outfits of his career, all worn by a host of oddball models.

The rapturous audience was delighted to see the infamous sailor boy outfits, boob enhancing strap dresses from the era of his collaboration with Madonna and glistening bare chested gents stepping out with elegant older ladies. Although Jean Paul Gaultier spotted tattooed one time super model Ève Salvail in Japan during the 90s she is actually from Quebec so it was fitting that she made an appearance. What a great way to start my Montreal Festimania experience!
