Inspired by Suminagashi – Japanese calligraphy, Yumi Katsura created a collection of gowns with straight lines & pleats that are truly feminine. A mixture of dark and vivid colors lit up the runway: black, purple, white & pink. Hi-lo skirts & minis, large collars, belted waists and fringe details were the key takeaways. The entire collection was absolutely stunning, with my absolutely favorite piece was this black/white/grey gradation dyed dress featured above. I would love to add this dress to my wardrobe.
I was fortunate enough to meet Yumi Katsura backstage and she is a very calm, poised and extremely friendly – it was truly an honor. Thank you so much for having me!
