Born in 1967, Guo Pei is perhaps best compared to a risk-taking Alexander McQueen with her princess-like dresses that fulfill a thousand dreams for Chinese brides. In business for 14 years she has held 3 shows featuring her work. She said the designs are an expression of her thoughts and words. Guo Pei said, "'China Bride'and 'Dragon' story, these are my own stories. I design stories. My design and clothes are my words. I tell stories through every design and that is my real expression."
