Film (Trailer) – 2018

This feature documentary follows Chinese fashion designer Guo Pei as she aims to join the exclusive world of Paris’s Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. Director Pietra Brettkelly (A Flickering Truth) traces the designer’s Cinderella story from Mao’s China to Paris fashion shows, and the Met Gala fundraiser event in New York — where pop star Rihanna modelled a 27 kilogram yellow fur gown by Guo Pei in 2015. Yellow is Forbidden was selected for the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival (the first Kiwi film to screen in the festival's main competition) and the NZ International Film Festival.

No matter how famous you are in China, in Paris you start from zero.
– Guo Pei
