HUAAS Guo Pei exhibition private guided tour at Asian Civilisations Museum 2 August 2019


Guo Pei is an internationally renown designer resident in Shanghai, China. Her dresses have been worn by celebrities such as Rihanna. 20 HUAAS members, Harvard alumni and guests were given a special treat at the Guo Pei exhibition at ACM. The FOM docent, Mrs. Patricia Welch, expertly guided the tour. All were impressed by the fabulous couture, runway and private client creations on display. Guo Pei draws inspiration from many sources, from Chinese blue and white porcelain, Peranakan beaded slippers, silver ware to Chinese roofs! We were told the detailed stories behind each dress and the celebrities wearing them, giving a special insight to each dress. Thanks to all who attended and look out for the next HUAAS museum special tour.
