Jean Paul Gaultier's exhibit "From Sidewalk to Catwalk" has been traversing the globe, and it's just made its way to London. In honor of that fact, AnOther Magazine posed the designer a series of questions as part of its "Proust Questionnaire" series. Besides sharing that wasabi makes him cry, he answered a few more questions:

Do you have a mentor or inspirational figure who has guided or influenced you?
My teddy bear Nana.

What is your proudest achievement in work?
A cone bra for my teddy bear.

And his idea of a romantic night? "Sharing a can of cat food with my cat in front of the TV." A wild and crazy guy, this one!
