This Canadian premiere is a must-see and a fantastic way to show off the city’s rich arts & culture for visiting family and friends. See the famed yellow imperial cape – constructed from fifty-five pounds of embroidered silk and featuring a five-meter train – that went viral after Rihanna wore it the 2015 Met Ball. Your guests won’t believe their eyes while taking in the more than forty fantastical Haute Couture creations, many adorned with precious stones, Swarovski crystals and gold, that celebrate the craftsmanship and beauty of China’s historic dynasties.
