I’m sure by now you’ve seen Rihanna’s yellow couture Met Gala look by Chinese designer Guo Pei but Have you seen the Met exhibit China Through the Looking Glass? The Costume Institute at the Met has had the exhibit open for a while and it was supposed to be coming down but due to popularity and traffic levels, however, the Met has decided to extend the exhibit until Labor Day! If you haven’t seen it already, you must! It is absolutely fabulous.
“High fashion is juxtaposed with Chinese costumes, paintings, porcelains, and other art, including films, to reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery.” Designers like Paul Poiret and Yves Saint Laurent take inspiration from Chinese culture and aesthetic.
