Guo Pei: The Chinese designer behind Rihanna’s yellow dress


Chinese language gown designer Guo Pei’s huge break got here when a singer she had by no means heard of, named Rihanna, contacted her a couple of yellow gown she had seen footage of.

The pop star wore it to the New York Met Gala – sparking a viral meme because the outfit was in comparison with an omelette.

However for Guo Pei it led her to Paris Vogue Week and worldwide acclaim.

Born in 1960s communist China, the place “there was no style in any respect”, Guo Pei informed the BBC how she took the “unthinkable” threat of quitting a well-paid job to fulfil her dream of designing and making clothes.
