Brides can expect simple yet sophisticated designs from designer Rita Vinieris, who has two lines: Rivini and Alyne by Rita Vinieris. The daughter of Greek immigrants, Vinieris studied fashion at the International Academy of Design before stepping into bridal as an in-house designer at a boutique in Toronto. She launched her first collection, under the name Rivini, in 1995 and began selling gowns in the United States in 2014. Vinieris's dresses are all about fluid silhouettes and pared-back designs featuring luxe embellishments.

Below, the latest collections from Rivini by Rita Vinieris.

Rivini by Rita Vinieris Spring 2022

"This season is about lush layered textures and fluid architecture merging together in perfect harmony," Vinieris said of her Spring 2022 collection "The Search for Sublime." She continued, "From diaphanous gossamers and tulles to dimensional floral laces and sustainable crepe, the details are delicate and airy allowing the fabrics to gentry drape over the curves of the body."

In accordance with our diversity pledge, it's our duty to note that at the time of publishing, this brand/designer did not include BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) in their Spring 2022 campaign imagery. We have since reached out to this brand/designer to encourage them to include BIPOC imagery in not only this season’s campaign but in future campaigns as well.

Rivini by Rita Vinieris Fall 2021

This season was inspired by the '70s and features simple silhouettes accented by beading and floral appliqués. "This season is about walking the line between luxury and nonchalant 70’s confidence. Luxe silhouettes detailed in intricate embroideries, rich fabrications, and sensual layers of textures allow for ease of self-expression.
