Guo Pei – Fashion, Art, Fantasy. The international exhibition profiling the work of couture designer Guo Pei opens on Saturday, December 9 at Auckland Art Gallery.
For over 20 years, Guo Pei has adorned royalty and celebrities. On show will be the Yellow Queen gown worn by Rihanna to the 2015 Met Gala, plus outfits never seen in any other gallery or museum.
The exhibition brings the fashion runway to the Gallery to showcase 60 of Guo Pei’s creations. Exclusive to Auckland Art Gallery, the exhibition presents the designer’s most innovative and captivating pieces created between 2005 and 2020.
Drawing her themes from nature, mythology, and European and Asian clothing traditions, Guo Pei leads viewers on a wondrous journey through dreamscapes, magical gardens, and transformative encounters.
The Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy book featuring a Q&A and insight into her imaginative world will be available to purchase along with Pei-designed scarves, ceramics, Barbie dolls, gifts and more.
Auckland Art Gallery has programmed a series of special events, including celebrations on the exhibition’s opening weekend.
