New Zealand documentarian Pietra Brettkelly chronicles designer Guo Pei’s attempt to break into the exclusive and mostly European club of elite fashion designers.

How did the daughter of a communist soldier and primary school teacher, educated at ‘No 2 Light Industry School, Beijing’, become the designer of choice to China’s one percent, positioning herself for global significance?

Compelling and stimulating… an intimate, involving portrait of Chinese fashion designer Guo Pei.
