After visiting the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 in Kiev, Jean Paul Gaultier created very beautiful collections in which the influence of traditional Ukrainian costume was very noticeable. So Gaultier’s fall-winter 2005/2006 Haute Couture and spring-summer 2006 pret-a-porter collections were inspired by Ukraine.
The guest of honor at Jean Paul Gaultier fall-winter 2005/2006 Haute Couture was Kateryna Yushchenko, the wife of the president of the Ukraine. Every outfin at that show has Ukrainian name and all sectors in the show hall were named like Ukrainian regions.
Jean Paul Gaultier spring-summer 2006 pret-a-porter collection was rich of ethno elements, espessially embroidered blouses (vyshyvanka – the Ukrainian traditional clothing ).
