Guo Pei has been deemed the top Couturier Extraordinaire of the Asian Couture Federation. That is why the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture recently chose her to introduce her collection “SS16” on January 27th, 2019 in Paris, France. She will be alongside other industry greats like Valentino, Chanel, and Dior.
Over the last several years, numerous FIDé Fashion Week events have showcased Guo Pei’s amazing designs on their catwalks. This is the first time that the Federation Francaise de la Couture invited Guo Pei, making this a historical event for both the Asian Couture Federation and Asian couture in general.
According to Dr. Frank Cintamani, who is the founder of FIDé Fashion Weeks and the Asian Couture Federation, this invitation helps shine the spotlight on all the creative and talented Asian couture which exists, and it will hopefully be a turning point for the future of the industry. The fashion industry should not have any divisions between the various talent out there just because of where they come from. Guo Pei certainly made history from getting this rare invitation.
