Chinese designer Guo Pei to host first London show

Chinese couturier Guo Pei, famed for designing Rihanna's show stopping yellow gown worn at the 2015 Met Gala in New York, will stage her first fashion show in the United Kingdom.

The show will be held at the Victoria and Albert Museum, known as the V&A, in London as part of celebrations to mark the 20th anniversary of the museum's Fashion in Motion series.

The Chinese designer will showcase looks from her Autumn/Winter 2019/20 collection, Alternate Universe Couture, which previously debuted at this year's Paris Couture Week, inside the V&A's Raphael Gallery on Nov 1.

"I am very pleased to be the featured designer of V&A's Fashion in Motion 20th anniversary show," Guo said. "The V&A is an historic platform, preserving and celebrating art and design in many forms, from many cultures and very often spanning many centuries. I feel fortunate to be included onto V&A's platform and very much looking forward to the collaboration."

Fashion in Motion is a free event enabling the public to enjoy a catwalk show by leading international designers.

Previous designers featured in its 20-year history include Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier and Yohji Yamamoto.

The V&A said the pioneering series shows fashion as it is meant to be seen, in movement, bringing the designs to life.
