Top French designer Jean Paul Gaultier spotted a new graffito in Paris after his recent triumphal Couture show in the city, featuring Austrian singer Conchita Wurst.

Soon after the successful show by the 62-year-old designer stunned the Parisian fashion scene, Gaultier spotted a remarkable piece of graffiti on an otherwise nondescript wall near his atelier.

The graffiti depicts Austria's cross-dressing entertainer Tom Neuwirth, in his full costume as Conchita Wurst, wearing an elaborate design by Gaultier - the same design that was featured in the designer's latest show. This was Wurst's modeling debut.

The young Austrian posted the image on his Facebook on Tuesday, with the comment "Home sweet home… and see what Jean Paul Gaultier has found in Paris! Street Couture! ‪#‎Suriani‬   Schaut was Jean Paul Gaultier in Paris gefunden hat!  ‪#‎theunstoppables‬."
