"The de Young Museum recently held an exciting, fashion-forward contest to promote the launch of their special exhibition, "The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to
the Catwalk". . . the de Young Museum was able to have Jean Paul Gaultier choose the submissions he liked best. The two winners of the contest were San Francisco fashion designer Daniel Sudar and
artist Christina Cree. Daniel entered one of the designs from his Spring 2012 collection and Christina entered a design that was showcased at fashionART Santa Cruz 2011 . . . the de Young Museum executed a contest that had people thinking about Jean Paul Gaultier's fashion influence and how they could be involved in the museum's festivities. Even those who don't have the chance to attend the opening ceremony will have the opportunity for the
greater celebration; viewing the exhibition and seeing Gaultier's inventiveness and humanist vision through cutting-edge fashion and eclectic sources of his ideas."
