As a young girl in Armenia, Arminé could be found sketching, drawing and making clothes for her dolls. From the very start her sense of color was instinctively refined and she was always able to express herself through design. She credits her grandmother as her inspiration and for her love of art. Arminé holds a degree with honors from the prestigious Fine Art University in Yerevan, Armenia.
Upon her arrival in the U.S. Arminè continued to explore her passion for design and enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise in Los Angeles. She also became an expert in fabrications by working at International Silks and Woolens where she was exposed to the most luxurious fabrics available. Arminé graduated from FIDM with honors and began her journey as the assistant designer in a Beverly Hills fashion house.
After taking time out of her career for the birth of her two daughters it was now time for her to fulfill her dream of having her own atelier; she then opened R-Mine Bridal in Glendale, CA. It was here that she established her relationships with the finest bridal designers in United States and Europe and won the respect of the Bridal Industry. Due to her knowledge of fabric and design she immediately became renowned as one of the most astute buyers in the market; salons across America follow her lead establishing trends that move the industry.
Today Arminé can be found in her couture atelier in Studio City offering the finest and freshest designs from the leading designers of the international bridal world. She has also established herself as a leading designer of a prestigious private couture collection that she offers exclusively through her boutique. Her designs have been worn by a growing number of celebrity brides. Her work is also gracing the red carpets throughout the entertainment and recording industries.
Based on her international experience there is no better place than Los Angeles for her to express her belief that we live in a multi-cultural world and that any woman can articulate her inner self and be radiant and beautiful.
