It’s Sunday! This is a great day to visit the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, which welcomes international couture powerhouse Guo Pei as she transforms the galleries into a world of fantasy this fall. The exhibition Guo Pei: Art of Couture premiers with a fresh take on the artist’s finest and most personal pieces.

Guo Pei: Art of Couture features more than 40 works of couture art curated for exhibit by the world-renowned designer. Among the bespoke selection is Guo Pei’s Chinese Bride collection, which makes its North American debut at the Bowers.

This show marks the third time Guo Pei has exhibited at the Bowers and will be an exhibition milestone for Guo Pei. Choosing from the canon of her creative genius, the exhibit represents a creative journey that charts Guo Pei’s rise as China’s ‘Queen of Couture.’ Each gown not only underscores her unique ability to tap into China’s rich cultural heritage, but also an array of cultural influences from international arts, architecture, and mythology. The interplay of female empowerment, strength and vulnerability are all reflected in exquisitely executed couture.
