I was amazed by the forty ensembles by Chinese fashion designer Guo Pei currently on display at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California.
It is almost impossible to describe the intricate details and decorative elements Pei uses in her designs: crystals embroidery, metallic threads, luxury material, etc. The exhibition includes designs from 2006 through 2018 and includes many items shown at Paris Fashion Week.
Each ensemble includes fantastic platform shoes. (2015)
This is Guo’s interpretation of Aladdin. (2009-2010)
The exhibit runs through July 14, 2019. If you are in the area, I highly recommend it.
