In this Aotearoa New Zealand exclusive exhibition, experience the extravagant, breath-taking fashions of globally renowned Chinese designer Guo Pei. Drawing on influences from around the world and incorporating extraordinary fabrics and bejewelled embroidery, Guo Pei’s striking ensembles of clothing, shoes and jewellery are truly wearable works of art.

Be transported from the fashion runway into the Gallery to encounter more than 60 of Guo Pei’s unique garments up close. Romantic, with billowing skirts and delicate embroidery or seductive and form-fitting, Guo Pei’s gowns are the stuff of fantasy. Jewel-like flowers, cosmic landscapes, and mythical creatures ravish the senses and inspire the imagination.

A sought-after designer for royalty, film stars and celebrities, Guo Pei’s Yellow Queen gown worn by Rihanna to the 2015 Met Gala is showcased in the exhibition at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki. Also on display are outfits never previously exhibited in any museum.

Guo Pei: Fashion, Art, Fantasy 郭培:时装之幻梦 presents the designer’s most innovative and visually intoxicating ensembles created from 2005 to 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. Welcome to the astonishing world of Guo Pei.

Guo Pei: Fashion, Art, Fantasy 郭培:时装之幻梦 is organised by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco with significant support from the Asian Couture Federation.
