The all-singing, all-dancing fashion spectacular
Fashion supremo Jean Paul Gaultier is shaking up London this summer when his stunning creation Fashion Freak Show returns to London to take up residence at the Roundhouse for 52 shows.
Eccentric, scandalous, provocative, exuberant, and riotously funny, Fashion Freak Show looks at 50 years of pop culture through the eyes of fashion’s enfant terrible. An all-singing, all-dancing, costume-filled spectacle, the show tells the story of one of the most innovative designers alive today and is an explosive fashion show and revue all wrapped into one.
Fashion Freak Show is a feast for the senses, featuring actors, dancers and circus artists as they take to the stage in an outlandish, passionate and larger than life fashion spectacle.
Also see Jean Paul Gaultier’s secret fashion fantasies and some of his most iconic frocks and costumes, set against an explosive playlist of music hits that have inspired the artist throughout his life.
The show has been updated and reimagined for the Roundhouse to be staged with a catwalk, and features a giant video wall with vignettes of special guest stars – including a number of Gaultier’s long-term, iconic supporters and friends.
It’s magic, it’s rude, it’s sexy, it’s sassy. It’s a celebration of provocation. Come and see the extravagance that is the Fashion Freak Show.
Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fashion Freak Show runs from 15 July to 28 August 2022 at the Roundhouse in London.
