Jean Paul Gaultier Visits Academy of Art University

World renowned fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier visited my school Academy of Art University on 3-21-2012. Where he was presented an honorary doctorate degree by the Academy. Although, I didn’t get to speak with him directly or get any pictures with him like I usually do with our guest speakers I was still honored and thankful he graced us with his presence. 

Be sure to visit my blog for more coverage of our upcoming guest speakers visiting the academy later this month : Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen, Lidewij Edelkoort, Philip Treacy, London Milliner.
