Guo Pei: Couture Beyond is the first Canadian exhibition devoted to the work of Guo Pei, China’s preeminent couturière. This mid-career survey features more than forty complete looks from Guo Pei’s most iconic runways from 2006 to 2017. In her theatrical, extravagant creations, Guo Pei combines contemporary aesthetics, production methods and materials with ancient tradition, evoking Chinese history and mythology in her craft techniques, fabric selection and imagery. The exhibition provides a comprehensive overview of her evolution as a designer as well as her contribution to global fashion culture.

《郭培:超越時裝》將於 2018 年 10 月 13 日至 2019 年 1 月 20 日在溫哥華美術館 ( Vancouver Art Gallery) 舉行,這展覽將會是加拿大進行首次展出,屆時將展出中國頂尖設計師郭培令人驚嘆的傑作。 從北京二輕工業學校畢業後不久, 郭培於1997 年創立了自己的工作室「玫瑰坊」。郭培的作品從一開始就試圖重現中國末代皇朝清朝盛裝艷服的歷史,並努力傳承曾一度中斷的中國傳統設計和工藝。 郭培曾獲日本著名報章《朝日新聞》評為「中國五佳設計師」之一。章子怡在2008年北京奧運會上聖火採集儀式上的服裝、閉幕式中宋祖英與西班牙歌唱家 普拉西多•多明哥(Placido Domingo)一同演出時的禮服,也都是出自郭培之手。她通古融今的美學理念,備受推崇,在時尚領域的成就使她名列美國《時代周刊》2016年度「全球100位最具影響力人物」之一。 郭培的服裝精美絕倫、充滿戲劇性、獨一無二,寓示了中國歷代王朝的衰退,使她穩居全球頂級時裝設計師之列。本次展覽與亞特蘭大薩凡納藝術與設計學院時尚電影博物館(SCAD FASH)合作主辦 ,將回顧十多年來郭培設計理念的演變過程,並展示其最具代表性的四十多套秀款時裝。(圖片提供:Courtesy of SCAD)
