At the SCAD Museum

Couture Beyond is the first U.S. solo museum exhibition of designs by eminent Chinese couturiere Guo Pei. Presented by Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), and curated by the director of fashion exhibitions Rafael Gomes, Guo Pei fantastical, unrestrained creations imbues contemporary high fashion with ancient tradition, invoking history and mythology through intricate craftsmanship and avant garde silhouettes rife with symbolism.

This landmark exhibition will feature more than 40 of Guo Pei's most exquisite gowns, accordant footwear and accessories, including the now iconic imperial yellow cape worn by Rihanna to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala a seminal moment that introduced Guo Pei to America's fashion cognoscenti. In concert with the exhibition, SCAD is collaborating with alumni to produce a major monograph celebrating Guo Pei's spectacular oeuvre. The book, the first to focus solely on Guo Pei, will feature captivating new and archival images of the designer's work and offer insight into her remarkable career and global significance as an artist.

The volume will be published by Skira Rizzoli and is slated for release in Winter 2018. The exhibition will be on display until March 4, 2018, at SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta, Giorgia.
