Ahead of the opening of The One, a stage production with costumes designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, we speak to the famous provocateur about the inspirations and ideas behind the clothes…

When the French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier was a young boy, he was taken by theatre. Attending some of the most famous French revues, he remembers the curtains going up and setting eyes on the extravagant costumes, hearing the loud music and sitting so close to the stage, he could even smell the powder make-up off the dancers. «I was enchanted,» Gaultier explains over a cup of coffee at the Diva Café in Berlin’s oldest theatre, the Friedrichstadt Palast. His eyes lit up. «I have dreamed of working on a revue ever since I was a little boy.»

Gaultier has finally made his childhood dream come true. On October 6, The One stage production will open at the Friedrichstadt Palast in Berlin, where Gaultier designed 500 costumes adorned with 150,000 Swarovski jewels. Sparkling, glamorous and eccentric, the production budget was 11 million Euros.
