CREATING A NEW GENERATION
OF LUXURY BRANDS AND REVIVING
CENTURIES OF CULTURE AND
CHINESE KNOW-HOW

MIKE KAGEE FOR WORLD FASHION TRENDS


  
     For many years Beijing based fashion designer Guo Pei
     drew an inspiration for her luxury fashion and couture
     collections from her travel's overseas but recently she
     decided to focus solely on China's culture.
     The beautifully elegant an bubbly designer's move brought
     her company into a small but growing and increasingly
     influential group of luxury brands that are having success
     by focusing on their countries centuries and heritage.
     "After 2008 I realised how proud I was to be Chinese, in my
     last collection is what I wanted to express as I wanted to
     speak about my country , its culture, it's people said Guo
     in organza white dress.....
     THE GUO PEI COLLECTION 2012 draws inspiration 
     from China's imagery and folklore, red and gold dresses
     covered with scales to mark the year of the dragon and
     other clothes with handmade embroidered hems and 
     sleeves. China has in recent decades been known to the
     world as the workshops of the world but Guo Pei is wisely
     using  her name and label as a marketing tool to create a 
     new generation of home-grown luxury-brands and to ditch
     some of the western designs and Bordeaux wines.
