One of the best exhibitions we saw in 2011, perhaps over the past few years, was the exquisite Alexander McQueen knock-out fashion turned fine art visionary show at the MET in NYC (can you tell we liked it?). With this in mind, we were excited to see how The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk would play out at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. After our run through, this is another solid fashion to fine art display that we recommend if you travel to SF this summer.
