From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk' that opens at the Kunsthal Rotterdam on Saturday 9 February.

Council member Antoinette Laan of Art and Culture and Emily Ansenk, director of the Kunsthal Rotterdam welcomed Gaultier at the platform of Rotterdam CS. A visibly elated Jean Paul Gaultier said he was very excited about the exhibition.Antoinette Laan: "It's fantastic that this Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition is in Rotterdam. Thanks to a collaboration with so many partners in the city, the exhibition has become an event in itself."

Emily Ansenk: "We're extremely happy with Mr. Gaultier's arrival, just before the opening of his spectacular exhibition at the Kunsthal. It's a great honour to have him put his own mark on this exhibition in Rotterdam. We have worked together with many different parties to make this a success and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone."Jean Paul Gaultier arrived in style. Especially for his trip from Paris to Rotterdam the Thalys gave a train a Breton stripe makeover. The stripe is one of the designer's trademarks. During the exhibition, the special Thalys will run the Paris-Rotterdam route. 

The city itself including buildings, trees and columns will be clothed in the Breton stripe. Together with Studio Vollaerszwart certain landmarks including the Euromast, McCarthy's Santa Claus and the route from Central Station to the Kunsthal have been given a blue-white stripe or another surprising Gaultier accent. 

Jean Paul Gaultier himself will remain in Rotterdam until Saturday 9 February. In addition to opening the exhibition at the Kunsthal, he will also be present at the Bijenkorf on Saturday afternoon to open the special Gaultiershop.
