|Rihanna's famous Met Gala gown
|This garment had at least 50000 hours spent on it
Guo Pei is a Chinese couturier, who creates the most magical, fantastical sculptural beaded and embroidered garments. For more about her see here.
I enjoyed the exhibition so much, I revisited it and was able to absorb the details in her creations without as many people around.
The yellow gown made famous when Rihanna wore it to the Met Gala weighs around 25kg. Some of the garments have had up to 50000 hours spend on them.
As a sewer and embroiderer, I really want to touch them, and lift pieces up to see what's underneath, but understandable one can't, so lots of photos and close-ups where I could were taken.
I totally recommend see this exhibition f you get the opportunity.
