“We have a lot of models that I love who came especially to make my show, so I am very happy,” Gaultier revealed amidst the chaos and celebrations. "but I assure you: Gaultier Paris will continue, haute couture will continue. I have a new concept; I’ll tell you about it later, I’ll tell you all the little secrets. But it is going to continue!"

Another iconic label quits the runway. But the hope that the brand will be alive is our silver lining. Let's hope the future does just to his artistry!
