Hailed as China’s premier couturier, Guo Pei’s extraordinary designs are celebrated for their exquisite craftsmanship, intricate embroidery, and innovative dressmaking techniques. Each of her designs begins as a sketch. The sketches serve as the foundation of her finished creations, beginning as simple outlines brought to life with gradual additions of ornamentation. This exclusive color pencil tin, featuring Guo Pei's Sketch for Garden of Soul, 2015 on the cover, was created in celebration of the exhibition Guo Pei: Couture Fantasy at the Legion of Honor museum in San Francisco. A perfect match with the Guo Pei Coloring Book, this set contains 12 double sided pencils, with 24 colors in total. Tin Measure 7 x 4 x .75 in.

Through exquisite craftsmanship, lavish embroidery, and unconventional dressmaking techniques, Guo Pei creates a fantasy that fuses the influences of China’s imperial past and export art, European architecture, international theater, and the botanical world.
