Junko Yoshioka Spring 2011 Trunk Show
August 12-14, 2010
Carine’s Bridal Atelier
Junko takes us on a journey through the wonders of the rainforest …
Dimension, layering, and texture
are the key elements for the Spring 2011 collection.
The gowns are feminine with soft and whimsical details,
emphasizing the organic shapes and colors,
that bring the rainforest to life.
Soft, unstructured draping with a nod to sheer fabrics,
gives the gowns a light movement.
So, yes ladies, a wedding gown can be
as light as air.
Lucky for us,
Junko is bringing the rainforest to our door.
So we don’t have to go running for our backpacks
and hopping on the next flight to the Amazon.
Leave the safari clothes and bug spray at home!

We did a quick Q&A with Junko about Spring 2011 & upcoming collections.
Let’s get to know…
Q: How do you like living in New York vs Japan?
A: I love NYC, the energy and pace is so exciting.
Q: Did you have any designers that influenced you?
A: I admire Alexander McQueen a great deal.
Q: What is the feeling of the Spring 2011 Collection?
A: Soft, feminine, flowy gowns with unique accents and details.
Q: How/where did you get your inspiration for this collection?
A: My inspiration for this collection is a stroll through the rainforest…hidden surprises at every turn.
Q: Do you tend to design gowns that are more trendy or classic?
A: I shy away from trends and strive to create neo-classic designs.
A: I am always looking to new techniques and art forms to offer my brides the most beautiful designs possible.
A: Belts are a growing trend and we like to add them to gowns that are simple and clean. It’s great to add a belt on after the ceremony, going into the reception party.
A: To create a simple, short dress with a focus at the neck!
A: Spend time with my 2 year old daughter, Nanami!!!!
Q: Lastly, can you give us any hints for your Fall 2011 Collection? What can we anticipate?

After the Q&A with Junko,
I must say, I am oh so very excited
about the Trunk Show.

please feel free to ask.
I’ll meet you in the rainforest …
