The 2nd Annual Joy Light Lecture in East Asian Art Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday October 20

6:00 PM  –  7:00 PM

Widely hailed as China’s premier couturier, Beijing-based fashion designer Guo Pei uses exquisite craftsmanship, lavish embroidery, and unconventional dressmaking techniques to create a sartorial fantasy—one that fuses her personal story with myriad influences: China’s imperial past and export art, the grandeur of European court life and architecture, theater, and the botanical world.
Jill D’Alessandro, exhibition originating curator and costume and textile arts curator at The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, will highlight Guo Pei’s most important collections to reveal how her work and artistic approach are both deeply rooted in her heritage and shaped by the evolution of China’s fashion industry.
