“Time to Celebrate,” Yumi Katsura Couture’s playfully romantic Fall 2022 bridal collection by designer and creative director Paulette Cleghorn “was inspired by the need to find joy and to celebrate the blessing of life after this post-pandemic recalibration of our collective values.”
The dreamy shoot lensed by fashion photographer Joy Strotz, was set in the decadent gardens of New Jersey’s Van Vleck House and Gardens and stars model Aoki Lee Simmons: “I literally feel like I am living inside a fairytale” says Simmons, “every dress has its own magic and I could not be more excited to be part of this campaign!
“The diversity of this season’s Yumi Katsura Collection, will resonate with contemporary brides seeking classic elements of tradition commingled with beautiful modern touches. The Yumi Katsura bride celebrates life and her unique identity by intentionally making an effort to see the positive and embrace this moment of time and life with real love and gratitude and the gowns reflect that”, continues Cleghorn.
