Past Exhibitions

November 14, 2015 - January 3, 2016

Guo Pei’s stunning gown, titled The Great Queen, made its first impressive appearance in a 2009 show of the designer’s haute couture works. The gown achieved worldwide recognition when Rihanna wore it to this spring’s Met Gala in New York City.

The gown is magnificent in the way it reflects the undeniable beauty and power inherent in the ideal queen. Guo Pei’s skill can be seen in the elaborate train, which is over 9 feet long and is decorated with Chinese motifs using traditional embroidery techniques.


Guo Pei is a pioneer in the fashion industry. As the very first Chinese haute couture designer, she is credited with blending contemporary fashion with traditional Chinese design. Guo Pei continues to challenge herself and the fashion industry in her Beijing based Rose Studio and persistently attempts to pursue perfection with each and every design.
