Yumi Katsura's fall 2016 bridal collection is made for brides with a modern, artistic flair – brides who aren't afraid to turn heads with runway-ready style! The dresses feature macrame lace, origami-inspired sashes, and voluminous skirts, creating a collection that is both sculptural and romantic. Silhouettes are classic, yet are updated with contemporary twists like removable overskirts and layers of ruffles. A bride with personality is required to pull off these looks!

As a nod to the designer's Japanese heritage, origami-inspired draping and sashes reminiscent of an obi can be found on several designs. "Candida" is a ball gown of gently swirled ruffles and a skirt with origami-like folds; "Chou" is accented with an obi sash detail and origami-inspired pleats. The asymmetrical "Chiyoko" is also topped with an obi bow. Macrame brings a richness to other designs, such as the "Carwyn" ball gown and "Cher" fit-and-flare dress. A sense of whimsy pervades much of the collection, like the "Cordula" sheath with a skirt edged in tulip lace and "Canan," a ball gown with an airy skirt of multi-tiered tulle flounces.
