Designer Rita Vinieris showcased her FW18 Collection in Midtown’s TMPL Gym. Rita reimagined bridal wear to show a truly diverse collection, defying old traditions.
The collection featured 36 unique looks, providing something different for each bride, whether she preferred a full ball gown or a two piece pant set.
The first look featured a high low jersey dress with floral French lace and sequin accents, paired with white sneakers, introducing athleisure into the bridal world. Vinieris’ last look, a royal corset ball gown with transcendent floral beading in a cool blue hue, drew gasps from the audience and nods of approval from the first row.
One of my favorite parts of the collection were the accessories. Vinieris styled white visors with floral lace and created an unconventional lace veil with sunglasses, paired with a traditional crepe sheath with a French appliqued bodice.
Of her inspiration Vinieris said:
“Inspired by the multifaceted modern woman and her versatile nature in today’s world, the silhouettes this season are new and diverse with a relaxed, yet sensual couture ease. A mix of luxurious modern fabrications either lightly skim or effortlessly sculpt the body with active wear accents. The simplicity, gentle grandeur and fluidity allows women to express their individuality in a new-relaxed, contemporary celebration of love.”
