Junko Yoshioka Fall 2013

  |   By Rachel Cravit

Classic was queen at Bridal Fashion Week, especially in the Junko Yoshioka Fall 2013 collection. The Japanese-born New Yorker has long been known for her beautiful designs and this season was no exception: long, lace sheaths, billowing ball gowns and floral flecked frocks were mainstays on her runway, a shrine to little girls everywhere dreaming about their wedding day. With sparkle and bows to boot, the Junko Yoshioka Fall 2013 collection was joyfully girly without going over the top; the result was a simple, elegant aesthetic that fit this season's adoration of traditional to a tee. Sweetheart necklines were prominent, though Yoshioka did reveal a handful of dresses with illusion sleeves, like several other bridal couturiers. Some of Yoshioka's standout designs included an ethereal ball gown with lavish lace trim and bodice, a lace sheath with dramatic ruffled side slit and a multi-tiered A-line dress with a petal-style skirt, all of which would be exquisite choices to wear to an enchanted fairytale garden wedding. The Junko Yoshioka Fall 2013 collection kept things interesting by pairing a soft lace skirt with a modern geometric corset, also popular with Monique Lhuillier this season. Ultimately, Yoshioka achieved a difficult task: conveying classic bridal fashion that was simultaneously carefree. Shedding rigid formality, the lighthearted radiance of the Junko Yoshioka Fall 2013 collection made each dress appear to be begging for a twirl around the room.
