Out­landish and un­wear­able fash­ion with a fas­ci­nat­ing story at­tached

NZ House & Garden - - NOTED -


If you missed it at the In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val, NZ-born film-maker Pi­etra Bret­tkelly’s in­ti­mate doc­u­men­tary on fash­ion de­signer Guo Pei is hav­ing a lim­ited na­tion­wide re­lease. Best known to western­ers for dress­ing Ri­hanna in an ex­trav­a­gant gold thread and fox-fur dress at the 2015 Met Gala, the de­signer grew up dur­ing the Chi­nese Cul­tural Revo­lu­tion where such a cre­ative ca­reer was banned. It’s been a re­mark­able rise to fame. In cine­mas na­tion­wide from 1 Novem­ber.
