#Paris – All photos by Clara Abi Nader. Yumi Katsura successfully showcased a new Couture Collection on 21 January at The Westin Paris – Vendôme. The spring-summer 2019 collection is a participation of “Japonisme 2018” which is currently being held in Paris in commemoration of 160 years of Japan-French friendship.
With materials, shapes and motifs of Japanese traditional costumes as subjects, Yumi Katsura presented 28 dresses, which express her own sense of Japonisme. The highlight is “The elegance Tie”, symbolized by the belt of the Kimono.
