Gaultier Quits Ready-to-wearApril 22, 2015 - Author: steph - No Comments
Jean Paul Gaultier, made famous by his conical bra, after it was worn by Madonna on her tour, has recently revealed that he has quit his ready-to-wear line. Jean, who has been influential in the fashion industry for years now, has shocked the fashion world with the news.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Jean pointed out that too many clothes tend to kill clothes. He does not see the need for making too many clothes while no one is buying them. They are making clothes that will never be worn.
Does this signify the end of an era? The designer, who has been viewed as one among the most famous the world over, indeed has been having bad luck with his women collection in recent seasons. Critics have been judging them for lacking coherence.
The designer explained that he quit his women line because he could not cope with the fast paced industry, which demanded constant merchandising and marketing, anymore. Correspondents at AnastasiaDate confirm that he now aims to now put all his focus on his couture line, which he presents twice in a year, in January and July, in Paris.
Jean seems not to be the only one. Dutch design duo Vikor & Rolf also, in this year, stopped their ready-to-wear line. They intend to also concentrate on their couture line and are citing the same reasons as Jean. The pressure in the industry was just too much to handle.
