“For five years I’ve travelled all over the world with this exhibition, and it’s fantastic that it’s got as far as Seoul, its first stop in Asia, in the magnificent DPP designed by Zaha Hadid. I couldn’t have dreamed of a more beautiful venue to present my creations in Asia,” says Jean Paul Gaultier, in a news statement.
