Traditional meets contemporary at Guo Pei’s exhibition in Singapore

In collaboration with world-famous couturière Guo Pei, Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) presents ‘Guo Pei: Chinese Art and Couture’. Held till 15 September 2019, the exhibition spans across two galleries and feature 29 of Guo Pei’s dresses, as well as 20 Chinese art pieces from the museum.  Guo Pei’s creations were erratic yet full of grandeur, it felt like I was walking through Lady Gaga’s wardrobe – had she been a fan of Chinese-inspired fashion. I personally like how each of her gowns come complete with accompanying accessories, headgear, and shoes. Yellow Queen Even before entering the galleries, visitors are met…

Raffles in Southeast Asia: An exposé of Singapore’s founder, Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles

What do we really know about Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles and his role in 19th-century Southeast Asia?
