Angel Rivera Couture’s exquisite bridal and evening wear collections offer an elegant flair, fit for any contemporary bride-to-be. Rivera’s intricately detailed gowns are accentuated with the richest silks, delicate lace and intricate beading. Through studying at Parsons and working with brides-to-be at Kleinfelds, Angel acquired a keen eye for fit and proportion. His line exudes sophistication by creating dramatic sweeping silhouettes while flattering the female figure. Angel Rivera’s opulent designs perfectly combine fashion forward notions with traditional timeless beauty.

If that’s not enough, we touched base with Angel at New York Bridal Fashion Week and got the scoop directly from the creative mind behind the Angel Rivera Couture collection:

1.) What are you bringing to bridal that you feel hasn’t been seen before?
The Angel Rivera collection brings to bridal the essence of sophistication and glamour in dramatic silhouettes, fine silks and spectacular beading. I bring designs for the bride who want to command the spotlight.

2.) Are their certain fabrics and design elements that you prefer when creating a dress?
I enjoy working with silk organza’s and silk satins and when I find that perfect fabric I love to see what they can do in the draping process as well as how lace and beading can complement the fabric!
3.) How do you think you have evolved since the start of your first collection?
THE ANGEL RIVERA LINE CONTINUES TO EVOLVE IN SOPHISTICATED WAYS. Our beaded, embroi­de­red details, voluminous ball gown skirts, flattering silhouettes and lace wedding gowns live up to every women’s wedding dreams.

4.) We are so excited about your trunk show with us! What can we expect with your latest collection?
This season you will see lots of elegant and flowing fabrics with dramatic details such as silver embroidery, crystals, some draping and beautiful laces never used before…. and let me just add one more thing you will see some amazing back details!
5.) How did you get into fashion, and more specifically, why did you choose bridal?
As a child, I had an innate desire to create beautiful things. I was obsessed with fashion, and when I was old enough, I began to dress and accessorize my sisters for all kinds of occasions. But it was bridal that really caught my attention. My mother would take us to the flower park in Ohio and I would see all of the brides taking photos in their gowns on their wedding day.  They were so happy and always looked amazing.   I think a wedding dress is the most important garment a woman will ever wear, and one that she will always remember and treasure and this is why I do bridal.
