Instead of a catwalk, Gaultier's models displayed his latest designs at the Kazansky Train Station before an array of Russian celebrities and journalists, RIA Novosti reported Saturday. The show was staged as part of the Chereshnvy Les arts festival.
Gaultier told journalists he had given up on the idea of a railway fashion show after being rejected by the French.
"Once I wanted to stage a show in the Lyon Train Station, but it was not realized and I quit this idea," he said. "And now my dream has come true in Moscow."
Gautier said he wanted to use a train station because they "symbolize journeys and each one of my collection is also a journey of some sort."
