Jean Paul Gaultier Montreal Exhibition Celebrates Couture

To herald the arrival of Jean Paul Gaultier's stellar exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum through February 23, 2014, Everything She Wants revisits a post and video we posted in 2011 based on our visit to the exhibit in Montreal. Read on below:

Everything She Wants traveled to Montreal to see Sade (the concert was so brilliant we're going to Chicago to bask in the glow of her enduring, sorrowful beauty again in August). While we were visiting the chic, European-reminiscent city, we also checked out the awe-inspiring Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. "The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk" celebrates the outlandish French designer's 35th anniversary in fashion.




From the iconic cone bras and corsets he designed form Madonna's "Blonde Ambition" tour to daring red carpet gowns, the exhibition highlights Gaultier's eclectic and irreverent sources of inspiration through 120 haute couture dresses and ready-to-wear for men and women made between 1976 and 2011.





If you're planning to visit Montreal, don't miss this exhibition, which runs through October 2, 2011. Visit the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts website for more info and watch the sneak peek video we compiled (yes, the mannequins are talking).

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and
