Le théâtre exotique
"A dress touched the heart of the people. It's like an opera. You do not understand the language. Nevertheless, you feel moved,"
This is Guo Pei, the so-called doyenne of Chinese haute couture.
‘‘I always have a desire to create something that is fashion and is not fashion,’’ Guo Pei admitted and then laughed. ‘‘So a dress ends up weighing 50 kilos! Every piece is not fashion anymore. It’s sculpture; it’s painting. I want to put all that into a dress.’’ from 'Year of the Couturière'.
So what if these dresses are not at all wearable? Maybe they are not supposed to be worn, but admired, just like a form of art.
