Jean-Paul Gautier in the spotlight with his Fashion Freak Show

Jean-Paul Gautier in the spotlight with his Fashion Freak Show

This winter in Paris, your Hotel Doisy Etoile recommends a show that’s dazzling the entire capital. Bringing together that legendary venue of Parisian cabarets the Folies Bergères and ‘the enfant terrible of fashion’ Jean-Paul Gautier, the Fashion Freak Show invites you to share in an invigorating, offbeat, funny and daringly original account of the great couturier’s life that is like a cabaret and a fashion parade rolled into one effervescent pop creation!


Jean-Paul Gautier's Fashion Freak Show; a truly original and not to be missed experience

Everything is there. From the sailor suit and faded blonde of the master to the conical corset of Madonna, to the perfume bottles and melange of frou-frou and leather, the colourful world of the far-famed fashion designer is centre stage. In a dizzying succession of sung and danced tableaux, in the great tradition of cabaret, Jean-Paul Gautier invites you to relive his career, his beginnings, his nights of madness in London and Paris, and his most astonishing and outrageous creations. You don’t have to be a fashion enthusiast to be caught up in this joyous and delirious whirlwind!



Excellence on stage

As always with Jean-Paul Gautier, the joie de vivre, lightness and mischief can almost make you overlook the precision of the details, the creative finesse and the passion for perfection. In this flamboyant show, you’ll notice a new creation here, a striking model there, the magic of a costume or a posture. Jean-Paul Gautier has, as usual, put all his genius and energy into this show, but also all his demanding rigour. The two facets of genius!

Book your Folies Bergères tickets quickly so you don’t miss this great show. The team at your Hotel Doisy Etoile will help you organise your evening. You will only be ten minutes away via Metro from the cabaret...
