"Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy" - Legion of Honor Exhibit

"Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy celebrates the extraordinary designs of Guo Pei—hailed as China's first couturier—and includes more than 80 works from the past two decades highlighting her most important collections shown on Beijing and Paris runways." Learn about this exciting exhibit coming to San Francisco's Legion of Honor Museum and more about its designer.


Here is more on the Guo Pei from the Legion of Honor:


"Through flashbacks, evocative imagery, and narration by Guo Pei, this film tells the designer’s story in her own words—from growing up during China’s Cultural Revolution and dreaming of beautifully embroidered dresses to presenting her designs on runways across the globe. An interview with curator Jill D'Alessandro takes you inside the “Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy” exhibition at the Legion of Honor for a closer look at Guo Pei’s extraordinary designs and the impact she’s had on the fashion world. “Guo Pei: Embroidered Dreams” is produced in collaboration with the designer, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, award-winning director Kargo Chen, and NOWNESS."



Also from the Legion of Honor:


"Through exquisite craftsmanship, lavish embroidery, and unconventional dressmaking techniques, Guo Pei creates a fantasy that fuses the influences of China’s imperial past, decorative arts, European architecture, and the botanical world. Through her extraordinary fashions, the exhibition reveals the trajectory of Guo Pei’s career as remarkable yet emblematic of China’s emergence as a leader in the fashion world in the early twenty-first century."


Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy is on display at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, CA from April 16, 2022 through September 5, 2022.
