Making women look and feel beautiful on their special day has long been a passion of Toronto native, Rita Vinieris. After seventeen years designing one of the preeminent luxury Bridal Collections, Vinieris turns her focus on the debut of her first Eveningwear Collection. After helping several girlfriends with their wedding dresses, Vinieris found her true joy and promptly put her University of Toronto economics degree on hold to quickly transfer to the International Academy of Design to study fashion.
In 1995, using her skills as an opportunity to breath new life into bridal wear, Vinieris began to design a collection of wedding dresses for brides that focused specifically on their shape and what they envisioned for themselves under the label “Rivini.” Vinieris now takes pride in helping women achieve their ideal look for every special occasion with her debut eveningwear collection. Her inspiration is from her love of beauty, life and desire to maintain a focus on luxury fabrics, architectural draping and meticulous fit. Vinieris is determined to make each women’s’ special occasion unforgettable. “I love being able to help women find that perfect dress that expresses their personal style.” Vinieris has been honored with many industry awards: 2002 New Designer of the Year, 2006 Best Ad Campaign of the Year, and 2007 Best Ad Campaign of the Year. Creating from a blank slate and always searching for newness in design, Rita Vinieris now wields her mastery from day to night.
