Bridal Market Preview: Junko Yoshioka “Champagne” Wedding Dresses
Couture designer Junko Yoshioka, known around the globe for her neo-classic sophisticated and chic wedding gowns is launching a diffusion line of wedding dresses this Fall 2012.
The line has the same attention to detail and craftsmanship as her couture collection, but slight shifts in fabric and embellishment make the Champagne collection much more wallet-friendly, at around $1800-$3300 each.
Champagne by Junko Yoshioka will launch with 12 gowns that embody Junko’s design philosophy of clean, classic looks with a twist of modern style and unique detailing that has made her couture collection a hit with brides.
Junko Yoshioka first made a name for herself in the industry by creating stunning contemporary gowns that stray from traditional bridal standards. Her signature elegant and modern designs are often embellished with Avant Garde materials such as wools and leathers. The juxtaposition of unlikely fabrics with elegant silk and satin makes for an unexpected and beautiful pairing. One can expect Champagne to be a similar playful and ultra feminine collection.
