The latest Rivini collection, designed by Canadian Rita Vinieris, definitely had jaws wagging—and not just because of the gorgeous gowns. Vinieris made a powerful statement by opening the show with two brides holding hands, one wearing a beautiful dress and one wearing a chic pantsuit. For the collection, Vinieris took inspiration from the mysterious and romantic Italian city of Venice, and many of the gowns boasted undulating hemlines and rippling tiers that reflected the city’s countless canals. From modern ballgowns to daring lace pantsuits, there really was something for every type of bride in this Rivini collection. The bold accessories were fabulous too—looks were finished off with dramatic accents such as oversized sashes and fabulous feather capelets.
