SPRING/SUMMER 2016 Courtyard Collection / WEDNESDAY 26 OCT 6.45PM & 8.15pm
Kicking off the festival at SGFW (Gallery) is Chinese haute couturier, Guo Pei. As one of the most renowned designers in the Chinese fashion scene, Guo was commissioned to create a gown for the 2008 Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony. In 2015, she was catapulted into international stardom when she dressed pop star Rihanna in a trailing canary yellow gown for the 2015 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala.
Since then, Guo has become the first born-and-raised Asian designer to be invited as a guest member of the prestigious Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, and was named by TIME Magazine as one of the world’s 100 Most Influential People of 2016. She will showcase her Spring/Summer 2016 “Courtyard” collection of showstopping beaded and embroidered creations.
