Elton acknowledged Gaultier’s talent and noted his appreciation for the designer’s support of the EJAF.

He wrote:

“Best wishes to @jpgaultierofficial on your retirement from 50 glorious years in fashion. So much talent, joy, and innovation. You broke down so many barriers and challenged convention.

”The kindest heart and a great supporter of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Here he is at my 50th birthday in London. Hardly over the top dear…….!”
