Following in the footsteps of Alexander McQueen and Anna Sui, designer Jean Paul Gaultier will be the next high fashion house to partner with Target, debuting a limited edition lower end line March 7, 2010. The collection will be available in more than 250 Target stores nationwide and also on Target.com, and will reportedly incorporate past and present styles in American pop culture.
Jean Paul Gaultier, who has dressed celebs such at Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Beyonce, is perhaps most famous for the costumes he designed for Madonna‘s Blond Ambition Tour, including the iconic cone bra. Launching his own line in 1976, the designer is known for his unconventional expressions of sexuality in his designs, sculpting fashions to accentuate every curve on the female form. Always pushing the envelope with his avant-garde creations, Gaultier is perhaps one of the most controversial haute couture designers.
