(New York, New York); RIVINI by Rita Vinieris gave the audience what they came to see this season, beauty, romance, glamour and wow! Famed designer, Rita Vinieris, showcased her Fall/Winter 2019 creations taking her brand to a new high in couture bridal design. Full of awe, imagination and romance, the collection firmly holds it’s place among the bridal elite. Held at the artful Chambord House (555 W. 25th Street) in Chelsea, guests were invited to a serene and relaxed atmosphere where they were able to casually peruse the collection as they partook of an immersive experience of passed hors d’oeuvres, complimentary mani/pedi treatments and signature cocktails.
Born and raised in Canada, Rita 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 and in 1995 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 Mens 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.”
