"Like ripples of water when you toss in a stone, this collection is based on layering, draping, and soft, sophisticated elegance," says Japanese-born, New York City-based designer Junko Yoshioka. Using off-white duchesse taffeta as the pool for her "ripples"—Yoshioka is known for her deft hand with asymmetry—she created this fit-to-flare strapless gown called "Cascade." As with the rest of her upcoming Spring 2013 collection, the designer evoked her couture-minded client by focusing on key details, like the wrap bow seen at the waist of this gown.

Stay tuned for full Fashion Week coverage starting April 11, and see how last season's sketches translated into real-life runway creations.
