RIVINI and ALYNE, both by Rita Vinieris were a dream to behold; two gorgeous collections of fairytale-worthy gowns. These gorgeous gowns felt as if they had walked out of a utopian society, featuring delicate lace, exquisitely intricate floral appliqués, and flattering structured silhouettes and bold capes.
RIVINI by Rita Vinieris is perfect for the modern bride, while still maintaining the allure of more traditional bridal gowns with an edge.
ALYNE by Rita Vinieris is an ethereal and dreamlike collection for the whimsical bride. Both RIVINI and ALYNE wowed crowds during private appointments in the ultra-chic Rita Vinieris showroom.
“I was inspired by mystical & captivating European Castles. Fall 2020 was an exploration of deconstructing the old and iconic silhouettes and melding them with contemporary luxurious couture details. I played with Baroque inspired laces that have modern elements and refined European satins. By merging grandness with minimalism, the past with the present I reconstructed gowns that are both opulent yet understated,” said designer Rita Vinieris.
Born and raised in Canada, Rita Vinieris studied economics at the University to Toronto yet her dream was to do something in design and tap into her ‘creative’ side. She went on to study fashion at the International Academy of Design.
In 1995, Vinieris launched her first collection of wedding dresses, RIVINI, which is now an international preeminent luxury bridal brand.
Prior to creating Rivini and Alyne, Rita Vinieris worked as a designer for an evening dress company for 6 years, freelanced as a designer for Izod Lacoste Men’s Canada, designed furs for the Japanese market and later was a design coordinator for Fairweather. “I love being able to help women find that perfect dress that expresses their personal style.”
