Move over, Givenchy, couture is coming to town. Fashionistas, historians, and lovers of beauty will rejoice as Guo Pei, China’s world renowned couturièr, brings her ethereal works to Santa Ana’s Bowers Museum. Guo Pei celebrates her cultural heritage through textiles and fabrics, and blends high-fashion artistry with China’s rich history, fairy tales, and even military influences. Celebrities, royalty, and the fashion elite wear her designs as a statement, while the rest of us sigh, fawn, and only dream of wearing her exquisite creations. Seemingly made for goddesses and fairies, and with detailed embroidery and bead work that speaks of a time long past, her delightful creations are also modern and fresh. These aren’t just show stoppers— Guo Pei’s exquisite couture is the show.
