Half century of bridal beauty

Japanese bridal gown designer Yumi Katsura is celebrating her 50th anniversary of fasion design. Although her brand has been around awhile, her runway show at New York International Bridal Week in October showed that whether she is creating for an American bride or an Asian bride, she still knows how to combine beauty and art, tradition and innovation, in her garments. Here are some of the looks that went down the runway in New York City. For more information, go to www.yumikatsura.com.
