Yumi Katsura showed a varied collection of designs during the bridal week in New York City.
Ruffles, layers and tiers defined the wide collection of bridal gowns on display. Her fabric folding techniques and gown construction are an art in themselves. The designer shows her own interpretation of origami skills on fabrics. The most interesting proportions are created with the play of texture and volume. The finest of fabrics like silk give more weight to the collection. Each gown is further embellished with elaborate detailing with the use of stone, crystal and bead work on the bust line and bodice.

The draping skills are shown off to perfection in this beautiful gown. It has a hand fan like effect which gives way to structured drapes around the skirt area. Heavy embroidery around the bust line and on the skirt line – to hold the pleats together, shows Katsura’s exquisite craft.
