Now, however, after catching the attention of a few major celebrities on this side of the world, this sartorial wizard is here to stay. Though she may be new to us in the West, Guo Pei has been working as a hugely successful designer in China for over two decades, so she’s no spring chicken when it comes to the fashion world; she’s a pro.
In an inevitably wonderful partnership, Pei has just teamed up with beauty giants MAC Cosmetics for a collaboration pretty enough to set your heart aflutter. Moving far away from the plain black packaging of their standard collections, this oriental inspired series of beauty products is to die for. Like miniature works of art, here your lipstick and eyeshadows will come encased in a stunning floral design, hand sketched by Pei herself.
Available in MAC stores from October 1st and launching online at the end of September, we’re beside ourselves with excitement in anticipation of this 16 piece collection.
