The 48–year old Beijing born designer has been designing ensembles for big Asian superstars like Li Bingbing and Zhang Ziyi. Exploiting and exploring her passion in fairytales and the rich cultural history of her motherland China, Pei was so much into the rich magical and fantastic oriental themes on her creations.

Her design dubbed ‘Magnificent Gold’ was so enormous; it needed to be enshrined in a single room to let the gown details in full view. Another of her epic creation she called ‘Blue & Porcelain’ was inspired by the versatility and intricacy of China porcelain creations which apparently took 10,000 hours to make and complete.
