Opening the museum's Season of Chinese Art, Guo Pei: Chinese Art and Couture is the Asian Civilisations Museum's (ACM) first exhibition dedicated to fashion. It explores the couturier's work in larger conversation with the history of Asia.

Curated by Ms Jackie Yoong, the exhibition features 20 artefacts paired with 29 dresses from Chinese couturier Guo Pei - each pairing is bound by visual or cultural themes in a dialogue between past and present.
