SYNOPSIS

Yellow is Forbidden is a modern-day Cinderella story where the brave, diminutive and daring heroine's dream doesn't end at the ball — China's Guo Pei is chasing every designer's fantasy — to become part of the exclusive yet savage world of Haute Couture. Set within a new China, the film is a feature documentary encompassing contemporary global power dynamics and the opposition between art and commerce, looking back at the history of couture all wrapped around the beauty of fashion.
