I wanted to talk about a designer I’m sure isn’t familiar to many of you, unless, of course you obsessed over the exquisite gown Rihanna wore to the 2015 Met Gala, China: Through The Looking Glass…that designer is GUO PEI. Based in China, her Haute Couture collections in Paris are always beyond spectacular. Often compared to Alexander McQueen and John Galliano she shows pieces that are, in my opinion, works of art.
In the Met exhibition, China: Through The Looking Glass.
Pieces from the recent Fall 2018 Haute Couture Collection inspired by the current Met Fashion exhibition Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
Pieces from past collections….beyond description..
If you love blue and white porcelain…how about this…
Known for dressing China’s elite, her first collection “One Thousand and Two Nights” in November 2009 featured Carmel Dell’ Orefice, seen in the photo above, wearing the show stopping Costume with its train carrying attendants, a design star was born In addition, she has designed for the Chinese cinema to award winning reviews.
A book, you bet….
A movie, sure….the documentary coming soon….
