Guo Pei: Chinese Art and Couture
Time Out says
Experience the opulence and reverence of tradition and heritage as 29 stunning embroidered masterworks by China's foremost couturière, Guo Pei, awaits you at this exhibition. On display are her dramatic, sculptural gowns reflecting influences from growing up in Beijing surrounded by Chinese imperial art and mythology, as well as expressing her personal take on contemporary fashion and aesthetics. As this exhibition showcases a dialogue between historical and contemporary Chinese design, you can expect Guo Pei's creations to be juxtaposed with 20 Chinese art pieces in the Asian Civilisations Museum's collection too.
As a closing special, visitors will be able to take home an exclusive limited edition tote bag inspired by the collection when they visit the exhibition between September 13 and September 15. Check out this Facebook post to find out more.
