The 62 year old fashion icon announced that his SS15 Collection presented at Paris Fashion Week would be his last of ready-to-wear.

“For some time, I have found true fulfilment in working on the haute couture and it allows me to express my creativity and my taste for research and experimentation. At the same time, the world of ready-to-wear has evolved considerably. Commercial constraints, as well as the frenetic pace of collections, don’t leave any freedom, nor the necessary time to find fresh ideas and to innovate.”
– Jean Paul Gaultier

For his last hurrah, Jean Paul paid tribute to the most influential designers of his 40-year fashion career.
