Ticket Giveaway: The Vancouver Art Gallery Presents Guo Pei: Couture Beyond

We’re giving away a pair of tickets to experience The Vancouver Art Gallery’s first fashion-focused exhibition, Guo Pei: Couture Beyond (October 13, 2018 to January 20, 2019)

The winner will receive:

  • 2 tickets to attend the Guo Pei and Bronwyn Cosgrave in Conversation on Tuesday, October 9 at 7:00 PM at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver Pacific Ballroom. A talk with designer Guo Pei facilitated by renowned fashion journalist and best-selling author Bronwyn Cosgrave. Presented in both English and Mandarin, this event will shed light on Guo as an artist whose medium of expression is fashion while examining the designer’s oeuvre of contemporary works revitalizing long-lost traditions.
  • 2 tickets to the Guo Pei: Couture Beyond exhibition  (opening October 13th)

 

To be eligible, simply post a comment below and be automatically entered to win. We’ll select the lucky winner on October 5th and notify the winner by email.

This Canadian premiere features the jaw-dropping fashion works of art from the only Chinese national designer recognized as part of La Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. Guo’s accomplishments in fashion have earned her a spot on TIME Magazine’s list of 100 Most Influential People as well as Business of Fashion‘s 500 list. Her critical success reveals the proliferation of influential fashion practices outside of the traditional Euro-American centres of Paris, London, Milan and New York.

Visitors will be invited to feast their eyes on Guo’s artistry such as her imperial canary-coloured cape. Famously worn by recording artist Rihanna at 2015’s Met Gala, the piece propelled Guo into the international spotlight. Constructed from fifty-five pounds of silk, layers of embroidery, and featuring an elaborate five meter train, the piece has since come to epitomize the detail and craftsmanship of Guo’s designs.
