Guo Pei has been called China’s premier fashion designer. She brought eight haute couture pieces from her Thousand and Two Nights collection to the 2010 Fashion Week Hong Kong catwalk last week. Her work fuses Chinese and Arabic design elements and a strong sense of of luxury.

One of the more interesting pieces resembled gilded pitcher plants assembled into a sculptural garment. Pitcher plants are carnivorous and the costume certainly looks dangerous: It offers lots of hidden ‘compartments.’
