Beijing Haute Couture designer, Guo Pei, makes me incredibly proud to be Chinese. Usually the 'Made in China' tag is associated with mass produced, 'cheap' goods. However the ones marked on these gowns are a whole different story with pieces costing up to $800 000 USD.

The design above was worn by Miss Universe China 2012, Ji Dan Xu. Such a masterpiece inspired by the Qing Dynasty 'Qing-Hua' (blue flowers) porcelain won the Best National Costume Award (with good reason!).

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!
