Gaultier grew up in a suburb of Paris.
It was his maternal grandmother, Marie Garrabe, who introduced him to the world of fashion. He never received formal training as a designer. Instead, he started sending sketches to famous couture stylists at an early age. Pierre Cardin was impressed by his talent and hired him as an assistant in 1970. Afterwards he worked with Jacques Esterel in 1971 and Jean Patou later that year, then returning to manage the Pierre Cardin boutique in Manila for a year in 1974. His first individual collection was released in 1976, and his characteristic irreverent style dating from 1981 has led to his being known as the enfante terrible of French fashion. Many of Gaultier's following collections have been based on street wear, focusing on popular culture, whereas others, particularly his haute couture collections, are very formal yet at the same time unusual and playful. Although most people found his designs decadent at the time, fashion editors, notably Melka Tréanton of Elle, Claude Brouet and Catherine Lardeur of French Marie Claire, were impressed by his creativity and mastery of tailoring and later launched his career. Gaultier caused shock by using unconventional models for his exhibitions, like older men and full-figured women, pierced and heavily tattooed models, and by playing with traditional gender roles in the shows. This earned him both criticism and enormous popularity.
Gaultier was the creative director of Herme from 2003 to 2010. In 2012, he was named as a member of the Jury for the Main Competition at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, This is the first time a fashion designer was called to sit on a jury at the festival. He also designed the dress that Anggun wore as she represented France during the grand-finals of the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 held in Baku, Azerbaijan, That year, he also participated in the Cali ExpoShow in Cali (Columbia), showing his extense collection of perfumes and all classic clothes. Up until 2014, he designed for three collections: his own couture and ready-to-wear lines, for both men and women. At the spring/summer 2015 show he announced that he was closing the ready-to-wear labels to focus on haute couture.
Gaultier produced sculptured costumes for Madonna during the nineties, starting with her infamous cone bra for her 1990 Blond Ambition World Tour and designed the wardrobe for her 2006 Confessions Tour. Gaultier has designed a number of the costumes and outfits worn by rocker Marilyn Manson, including the outfits for Manson's The Golden Age of Grotesque album. In France, the costumes he designed for singer Mylene Farmer gained much attention.
In spring 2008 he signed a contract to be again the fashion designer for her tour in 2009. In 2008, he designed the white and silver mermaid dress that Marion Cotillard wore at the 80th Academy Awards, when she won the Oscar for her performance in La Vie en Rose. He has designed the costumes for Kylie Minoque's international KylieX2008 tour, as well as the iconic Hong Kong singer Leslie Cheung, who hired Gaultier to design eight different costumes for his last concert tour in 2000.
