Paris Fashion Designer: Rime Arodaky
After graduating from l’École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in Paris, it wasn’t long before Rime Arodaky started working as a junior designer in reputable fashion houses such as, Sonia Rykiel and Dice Kayek. In 2010, Rime started sharing her wish lists, inspiration and first creations, as well as her personal perception of weddings and marriage; which quickly made her blog ‘Lalovelist’ an instant success.

She founded the Maison with the help of her team in 2011 in the heart of Paris, her hometown. Rime’s campaigns speak to women who challenge the status quo, and believe in the emancipation of the millennial woman. Inspired by icons from the 70s such as Jane Birkin and Romy Shneider, as well as, designers like Yves Saint-Laurent and Azzeddine Alaïa, Rime has always challenged the image of the innocent, offense-less bride and turned hers into a wild femme.
Disheveled hair, no bouquet, barefoot & fierce… The Rime Arodaky bride is Rock’n’roll yet sophisticated, mixing French savoir-faire and top-notch quality. The Maison rapidly became a household name in the wedding industry, because of its innovation and forward thinking.
Since 2015, Maison Rime Arodaky has embarked on a new journey by developing prêt-à-porter collections destined for young women who have a zest for life, and who wish to extend their wedding experience to include honeymoons, rehearsals, brunch.
Rime’s mantra is as rock n’ roll as the designer herself – she designs pieces that give a little bit of an edge and a little bit of attitude to her brides. Modern, chic, stylish women are at the forefront of every one of Rime’s pieces, women whom the designer describes as “effortless, wild and confident”.
Clean, modern and bang-on-trend separates make up some of Rime’s more striking silhouettes. Crop tops & illusion laces appear in the collection range as do simple sheath silk skirts and the most delicate camisoles, all made with luxuriously high-end French laces and fabrics. Rime Arodaky goes the rebellious route of mixing some of the more daring aspects of modern fashion with timeless bridal silhouettes and the result is elegant, effortless wedding fashion fit for one seriously cool bride.
