Biography

GUO PEI




“I love Haute Couture, because she is a kind of halt of life. Haute Couture doesn’t like ready-to-wear which prevails simply and also can be forgotten quickly. I hope my work could be showpiece as museum collection, be treasure as palace jewelry, and be masterpiece that will be handed on from age to age. Real Haute Couture is eternal, long-tested, and, many years later, will be a kind of glancing back of time. By that time, she could have a representation of the lost glories and residual splendors, and give a reinterpretation of happiness I have had and niceness I have created.”             ——GUO PEI
