With her passion for classic elegance and her focus on traditional silhouettes and simple sophistication, Rivini designer Rita Vinieris is not one for wedding dresses that bare it all, or bring to mind Vegas showgirls. Instead, Rivini’s new Spring 2016 collection takes its inspiration from the English landscape artist J. M. W. Turner, whose paintings are filled with natural light, radiant clouds and dreamy reflections. For Vinieris, that means bridal gowns with transparent layers that suggest a glimpse of the bride’s figure beneath, rather than how-low-can-you-go backs and ultra-plunge bodices.
See these stunning gowns next week, when famed Houston salon Mia Bridal Couture hosts an exclusive Rivini Spring 2016 trunk show. Mia’s expert consultants will be on hand to help you select your perfect Rivini gown, and assist you in styling it with beautiful accessories. Plus, Mia Bridal Couture will be offering special purchase incentives (meaning $ off retail!) for brides who purchase a Rivini gown during this special three-day event.
Appointments for this highly anticipated Rivini trunk show WILL fill. Make yours now, and make plans to be utterly and completely wowed.
