Riviera Nayarit - Renowned Mexican designer Benito Santos has designed an exclusive collection of wedding dresses for the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit.
Inspired by the contemporary and elegant design of the resort and its breathtaking scenery, the Las Novias Exclusivas collection is comprised of 10 gowns – each also displaying a unique characteristic of Benito's personal style. Starting at $2,500 USD, the ultra-feminine dresses are currently displayed in the resort's wedding showroom, but will soon be available for purchase at VelasWeddings.com.
Grand Velas' partnership with Santos began in 2016 when he introduced his 2017 Cruise Collection with a fashion show and pop-up shop as part of the resort's continued commitment to showcasing the best of Mexican fashion, art and crafts to its guests.
Santos leaped onto the fashion scene in 2008 at Intermoda, the largest fashion trade show in Latin America. Just 6 years after he launched his first line, the Jalisco-born designer is a favorite among women who love ultra-feminine dresses and glamorous evening wear. For his use of new resources, cutting techniques and hand embroidery, Santos has been recognized for his valuable contribution to the fashion industry by being awarded the national prize for fashion in 2014.
His work is worn by leading personalities in society and politics internationally, including First Lady of Mexico Angélica Rivera, Miss Universe 2010 Ximena Navarrete, Victoria Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel, singer Anahi (for whom he designed the dress to wed the Governor of Mexican state Chiapas), actress Jenny Pellicer and more.For more information on Velas Resorts Weddings or to book, please call 1-866-868-0922, email weddings(at)velasresorts.com, or visit VelasWeddings.com.
