Instalations by designer Jean Paul Gaultier at the Swarovski Kristallwelten Stores

Jean Paul Gaultier is more in demand than ever before: starting on September 14 and 18, 2015 the French designer will be staging the exhibition spaces of the two Swarovski Kristallwelten Stores Wien and Innsbruck in his own inimitable manner. The result is a unique combination of art and haute couture.

He is the enfant terrible of international catwalks: Jean Paul Gaultier has often made headlines with his creations before, shocking fashion purists and defining stylistic limits as he pleases. The new installations can be admired on the performance stage and in the glass bay windows of Swarovski Kristallwelten Store Wien from September 14th, and in Innsbruck in the Chamber of Wonder fromSeptember 18th.

Designers such as Philip Treacy and Marios Schwab have also recently unveiled their art in these extraordinary exhibition spaces. Carla Rumler, Cultural Director Swarovski says: "Swarovski has always had strong ties to art, culture, and design. This has led to numerous innovations. The same applies to the close cooperation we have had with Jean Paul Gaultier for many years. We are particularly pleased with the exhibition he designed especially for our Swarovski Kristallwelten Stores Wien and Innsbruck."

With courage and perfectionism, Jean Paul Gaultier has always been creating novelties in the fashion world - and this uniqueness made him the enfant terrible, who transforms the unconventional into the socially acceptable." For Stefan Isser, Managing Director of D. Swarovski Tourism Services GmbH, the displays by Jean Paul Gaultier in Vienna and Innsbruck are yet another mosaic piece for the Swarovski Kristallwelten Stores: "Thinking and trying out new things has been the hallmark of Swarovski for generations. The joy of playing, creating, and imparting moments of wonder has always driven us. We want to make people dream, create poetry and magic."
