At the settlement ceremony of the Asian Couture Federation in Miyun district in Beijing in June, veteran designer Guo Pei revealed some secrets about her designs for 2018 F/W Paris Haute Couture.

"This series is different from my previous work. They are inspired by architecture," Guo told China Daily website.

Known for her rich use of genuine gold thread and traditional Chinese embroideries, Guo's couture brings the concept of luxury and glamour into real dresses.

However, for this series, "divine" would be a better word to describe her clean tailored dresses that went on show in Paris on Tuesday.

The shadow of Gothic churches can be found everywhere, from lines to shapes to patterns — even the models' makeup.

Such religious elements create a strong air of solemnity in the metallic hues and black shades.

"Some people suspect the functionality of my designs. But my couture is not for a daily wardrobe, they are art pieces," the designer said.
