Hailed as China’s first couturier, Guo Pei is renowned for her extraordinary designs made with exquisite craftsmanship, lavish embroidery and unconventional dressmaking techniques. In collaboration with Mattel, this collector’s Barbie wears a traditional Chinese dress in red, symbolising good fortune and abundance, with golden phoenixes representing femininity and grace. Water and wave motifs, traditionally seen on the attire of royalty, symbolise wealth, nourishment and resilience. The embroidery and gold details reference the couturier’s artistic heritage and contemporary innovation. Perfect for future fashionistas and collectors alike.
