Renowned Designer Creates Wedding Collection for Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit

By Lauren Jade Hill

The accomplished Mexican designer Benito Santos has created an exclusive collection of wedding dresses for the AAA Five Diamond resort, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. Taking inspiration from the contemporary design and elegance of the resort and the breath-taking scenery it’s surrounded by, while also reflecting his personal style, Santos came up with the collection entitled Las Novias Exclusivas, comprising 10 unique gowns.

Starting at $2,500, each of these feminine dresses is on display at the resort’s wedding showroom and are soon to be made available to buy on This new wedding collection follows on the 2017 Cruise Collection, which was launched with a fashion show and pop-up shop, marking the beginning of the partnership between Santos and Grand Velas, reflecting the resort’s commitment to showcasing the best of Mexican fashion, arts and crafts.

Santos leaped onto the fashion scene when he made an appearance at Latin America’s largest fashion show, Intermoda, in 2008. Now, the designer is considered a favorite among women who covet ultra-feminine dresses and glamorous evening wear, and is recognized for his contribution to the fashion industry owing to his use of new resources, cutting techniques and hand embroidery.

In 2014 the designer was awarded the national prize for fashion, and his work has been worn by famous names in politics and society such as First Lady of Mexico Angélica Rivera, Miss Universe 2010 Ximena Navarrete, Victoria Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel, singer Anahi and actress Jenny Pellicer.
