Staying true to form, Rita Vinieris debuted her 2019 RIVINI and ALYNE Collections with an awe inspiring art like presentation that had guest still talking about it as they exited Lightbox Studios in lower Manhattan! Taking her cue from the current #MeToo movement, Rita delivered exactly what today’s modern and empowered woman wants in a wedding dress. Confidence, elegance, beauty and vitality! “The Spring 2019 collection is all about acceptance and empowerment. From the unique laces and strong confident, simple gowns to the substantial, edgy bearded harnesses, I wanted to feel courageous and empowered!”
Sophisticated, effortless glamour and chic silhouettes in rich fabrics that are energized by refreezing design details. Rita’s inspiration comes from her love of beauty, life and desire backed luxurious fabrics, architectural draping and meticulous fit. Subtle finishing touches include soft tucks and pleats, understated beading, sheer panels of fabric, a beguiling illusion, and a variety of couture techniques and styles. Workmanship of the highest level, uncompromising quality and fit are the cornerstones to her collections. Vinieris’s unerring sense of what modern women desire has shaped a brand that is alluring in its design, chic in its perfection, the essence of simple luxury.

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.”
