A Brief History of Wedding Dress Designer Rita Vinieris

Rita Vinieris was born and raised in Canada, and attended the University of Toronto where she studied Economics. She later studied fashion at the International Academy of Design. She has experience working at boutiques, has freelanced for Izod Lacoste Mens Canada, designed furs for the Japanese market, designed evening gowns for private clients, and was also the Design Coordinator for Fairweathers. Her ready-to-wear brand has become a favorite amongst celebrities like Kelly Osbourne, Thea Andrews and Gina Rodriguez.

In 1995, after helping several friends find gowns for their weddings, Vinieris began to design her own collection of wedding dresses. By 2014, the Rivini line was sold in bridal boutiques all across the United States.

Rivini Collection History

The Rivini Fall 2019 collection, titled #LiveYourBestLife, was designed for the bride who wants to exude confidence and grace on her wedding day. From voluminous ball gowns to sleek dresses with subtly-draped necklines, this collection is nothing short of pure elegance.

The Rivini Spring 2022 collection features lush fabrics, and structured corsets, along with refreshing silhouettes like voluminous skirts, long trains and unique capes—making this line ideal for the more fashion-forward bride. Although bold, Vinieris made sure to incorporate feminine details into these high-end looks with crystal work, soft pleats, dramatic tulle, and sleek satin. The collection provides several nontraditional options that make for the perfect second reception look, like a simple silk slip dress or an off-the-shoulder lace gown with bell sleeves.
