After three decades as the perpetual enfant terrible of French couture, Jean Paul Gaultier is finally getting some deserved respect–and his very own retrospective. The first ever museum exhibit dedicated to the man credited with popularizing Trash fashion, designing Madonna‘s iconic cone bra and putting men back into kilts, will open at the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal in June 2011 before making a pit stop in the U.S. ‘The Fashion World of Jean-Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk’ features more than 100 items, including ready-to-wear and haute couture pieces along with sketches and photographs celebrating the designer’s 35 years in fashion. The exhibition will then travel to Dallas (Nov. 13 – Feb. 12) and the San Francisco Fine Arts Museum (March 24 to August 19, 2012.) — and additional cities are under consideration. “He’s positively thrilled,” a spokesman for the designer told PEOPLE. —Peter Mikelbank
