Guo Pei: Embroidered Dreams
Through flashbacks, evocative imagery, and narration by Guo Pei, this film tells the designer’s story in her own words—from growing up during China’s Cultural Revolution and dreaming of beautifully embroidered dresses to presenting her designs on runways across the globe. An interview with curator Jill D'Alessandro takes you inside the Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy exhibition at the Legion of Honor for a closer look at Guo Pei’s extraordinary designs and the impact she’s had on the fashion world. Guo Pei: Embroidered Dreams is produced in collaboration with the designer, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, award-winning director Kargo Chen, and NOWNESS.
