Guo Pei for this Couture collection, Pei explore the philosophical dialogue between primitive and civilisation recreating her imagination of Himalayas.
The snow lotus is a key design element in this collection.
Himalayas represent a holy place for oriental civilisation, the residence of the gods and the sacred temple of the soul and the spirit soars to reach the divine.
The Himalayas is the sacred place of oriental civilisation and faith. For thousands of years, Himalayas symbolised the road to the truth. Guo Pei have never been to the Himalayas.
Guo Pei want to represent in the snow her own interpretation of this mysterious, spiritually powerful place.

The Himalayan gods are already smiling on her, and with exceptional ateliers at her disposal, the Himalayan skies aren’t even the limit.
Guo Pei has using luxury fabrics sourced from around the world, Himalayas featured precious gold brocade from China & Antique Japa Obic fabric. Guo Pei was inspired by the Himalayans’ Buddhist faith, sacred Buddha art patterns from traditional Thangkas embroidered on the reconstructed fabrics.
The Buddhas of the Three Realms and the Mysteries of the Circle of Life. Gold and silver thread embroidery are heavily featured to create the sacre tone of the patterns.
Guo Pei had selected an extremely rare and precious Himalayan plant with prodigious healing properties. Also rather impressive was the show’s finale look:a Himalaya’s snow-capped mountain tops is fused to the sky enlightenedby Buddha’s Infinite Light, the wisdom of Dharma nourished human civilisation and nurtures new life. The immortal myths of Himalayas are illuminated.
