French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier announced his retirement recently saying a fashion show in Paris soon would be his last. Without offering any detail on what would happen to his namesake brand, owned by private Spanish fashion and fragrance group Puig, Gaultier, 67, said in a brief statement that the brand would continue to exist.

“I will be celebrating my 50th anniversary in fashion with a major Haute Couture fashion show,” Gaultier said in the statement.

“Be reassured that Gaultier Paris will go on, with a new project which I am the instigator, and that will be revealed to you very soon,” global newswires quoted the designer as saying.

Gaultier, who emerged as one of the leading young talents in French fashion during the early 1980s, is best known for some of his sexy designs and stage costumes.
