Jean Paul Gaultier, known for his flamboyant styles, featured models in 'cage' dresses strutting down the catwalk during the recent Paris Haute Couture Week. As part his Autumn/Winter collection for 2008-09, Gaultier incorporated cages into coats, capes, dresses, skirts and even the feature bride wore a spectacular white and silver cage veil held on with elaborate helmet-like headgear.
"I have no intention to seriously put women in cages. My models are birds of paradise. They can remove the cages and fly," Gaultier said
On a practical note, I wonder what happens when one sits in such a dress.
