French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier said on Friday he will be retiring.
The designer said that his show scheduled for next week in Paris would be his last.
After a 50-year career on the catwalk, he has earned the reputation of the “bad boy” of the industry.
“I will be celebrating my 50th anniversary in fashion with a major Haute Couture fashion show".
67-year-old Gaultier's first individual collection was presented in 1976.
He has long been known for pushing boundaries in fashion, blurring the lines between men’s and women’s clothing.
