Meet the designer
Violetta Vieux, the owner of the VioGemini Bridal Boutique, began creating evening gowns and bridal accessories in early 2000, while she was still living in her native Moldova. In 2003 she was invited to France to present her latest award winning collection of entirely crocheted and beaded gowns. 4 years later she graduated from a prestigious fashion school ESMOD in Paris with Master’s degree in Creative Draping and Patternmaking.
Since Violetta Vieux, the owner of Viogemini Bridal Boutique , along with her family moved to California in 2008, she continued her passion for fashion as freelance fashion designer and shared her knowledge and skills with students from FIDM, San Francisco, as draping and patternmaking instructor.
Violetta is passionate about bridal gowns, for which she can use all her draping and intricate patternmaking skills, as well as beading and embroidery. In 2010 she presented her VioGemini bridal collections at numerous runways in San Francisco and the Bay Area. Her signature “transformable bridal gowns” and “mix-n-match” concept became very popular and the demand for her custom made bridal gowns has been growing rapidly.VioGemini developed a line of luxurious bridal accessories and launched a new brand “Garter Queen” which offers custom made Couture Bridal Garters.
In 2013 VioGemini moved into a new store with large, elegant showroom. The boutique is situated in the heart of historical Niles District in Fremont.
VioGemini exists to give all brides the opportunity to create her wedding day a unique and unforgettable experience.
What is the most important at the wedding? The BRIDE – of course! And her dress, her veil, her shoes, jewelry and other accessories - all need extreme care and attention to be selected, fitted and matched together to create that impeccable bridal look.
We know how complicated it is sometimes to match the color of your sash with that of your bridesmaid’s dresses, or your hand-died shoes...We know that most of the ready-made garters that you find in stores may not fit you as they are one-size-fits-all... We know how frustrated you can be when you have been to many different stores and still couldn’t find that bridal sash in baby blue color…We know how stressful it can be when you cannot get your accessories on time because of the long production turn-around at stores that have to order their products from overseas…
We know that and we are determined to offer you a stress free experience of shopping for all your bridal accessories in one store. Our consultants will closely work with you to understand what your vision of your dream wedding is, we will go over inspirations and samples and we will do our best to select and design the best bridal accessories for you. All our gowns and accessories are created in house, therefore our turnaround time is very quick, and if you are especially in a hurry – we can rush your order and you can get your accessories within just days!
We also offer custom gown design service, re-design your grandma’s dress and also professional alterations and pressing.
