RIME ARODAKY started as a small company, integrated by Rime and a couple couturières who helped make her designs come to life. The situation lasted a couple of years until Rime saw that to grow her business she needed to increase her hand labor. Her little atelier in Paris became a little bigger by incorporating pattern makers, cutters, modelists, stylists…. Today Rime’s first atelier employs 10 beautiful women who love the brand as much as she does. 

On 2021 we are celebrating 10 years since RIME ARODAKY’s creation, which only confirms Rime’s progressive but steady growth. We currently have five different ateliers in Europe, including the one located in the 2nd 'arrondissement' of Paris, which was originally full of couture houses. Rime is committed to promoting fair labor practices and safe working conditions throughout her ateliers. To take responsibility for the impact of her business, she has her team travel on a regular basis to the different locations to ensure that RIME ARODAKY’s pieces are made under safe, fair, legal and humane working conditions. 

Apparel workers are known to be among the lowest paid employees around the globe. Many have to work for long hours in dusty environments, unsafe conditions and receiving a low pay. Fast fashion only deteriorates this situation. Our goal? To make a difference in everything we do.

All the designs are conceived by Rime, who sketches them by hand. She then shares them with her “modelistes” or Pattern makers in our small Paris atelier who turn the sketches into reality. To do so they make an initial draft of the pattern on a toile or muslin fabric, and with Rime’s help they make any adjustments to get the correct fit and look. Once the final sample is validated, they will trace the paper patterns by hand onto hard card and create the first sample using the final fabrics. 

Once all the patterns and samples are made, RIME ARODAKY outsources part of its production unit with a number of technical workers who will cut, make and trim our pieces. We are also responsible for sourcing all the fabrics which Rime has carefully chosen beforehand. Although our production continues to be fairly small, using other ateliers gives us potential for larger runs where needed.

RIME'S world

WHAT DOES RIME ARODAKY DO DIFFERENTLY?

WHY

Rime is very clear about her business and about whom she likes to work with. “We’ve never really worked based on location but based on personalities”. We spend months finding the best factories around the world - the same ones that produce your favorite designer labels. When you look for Daniela, the owner of one of our small factories, you won’t find her hidden away in an office. Her workspace is right in the middle of all the action, next to her team. You will find her either coordinating the production or fully hands on making one of RIME ARODAKY’s pieces. Daniela’s attitude translates into everything she does, from overseeing production to inviting us to Piña Colada’s whenever we stop by - which has enabled us to build a strong relationship on a business and a personal level.

A SMALL LOOK INTO OUR ATELIERS

Daniela opened her factory after several years working for one herself. Although she originally graduated in chemical engineering, she soon became involved the production of garments which ultimately led her to open her own. She started with 5 seamstresses, which as of today continue to work with her. 

Daniela cares deeply of her employees and their wellbeing. Her factory is located in a deeply illuminated building, which has several rooms and plenty of space to accommodate everyone. She is known for employing hard working women and also paying very good wages. Her seamstresses are always paid in time and are eligible to receive a prime at the end of each month. 

“Wedding gowns have always been my teenage dream” she confesses. Not having had the chance to wear the dress of her dreams on her big day, she is extremely happy to be able to do so for all RIME ARODAKY’s babes.

HISTORY

Rime fait partie de la nouvelle génération de créateurs ayant décidé de bousculer les codes traditionnels du mariage. Depuis 2011, ses créations apportent style et attitude à une industrie très statique et conventionnelle. 

LA MAISON

Formée à la prestigieuse Chambre Syndicale de la Couture de Paris, Rime a fait ses premiers pas en 2004, aux côtés de Sonia Rykiel. Prêtresse de la maille, elle a laissé une profonde empreinte sur la vision que Rime a de l'éternelle parisienne: cette "femme sans artifices, garçonne mais sophistiquée". Une vision qui l'inspire comme une prophétie. Rime imagine l'homme qui se tient aux côtés de cette mariée sensuelle et un brin érotique.

Rime s'inspire de ses muses et imprègne ses collections de cette aura sensuelle : Kate Moss, Romy Schneider, Lauren Hutton, Zoe Kravitz, Vanessa Paradis, Bardot, Birkin ... des femmes très différentes mais qui ont le point commun d'avoir vécu leur vie avec une grande liberté. La femme Rime Arodaky est féministe, c'est une déesse moderne. La confiance en soi reste le meilleur atout que possèdent ses Rime Arodaky Babes. 

En 2015, Rime décide d'étendre l'expérience des mariées en ajoutant à sa collection cérémonie, une collection de prêt-à-porter ayant pour but d'accompagner le parcours de ses mariées, avant et après leur union. Mariage, répétition, civil, robe du soir, brunch, lune de miel ... tout le trousseau devient accessible via son site web ainsi que sur le célèbre site Net-A-Porter.

En octobre 2016, Rime s'étend au marché international et présente pour la première fois sa collection aux acheteurs et à la presse internationale, lors de la Bridal week de New York, En plus de son showroom parisien, Rime développe des partenariats à long terme avec ses détaillants à Londres, New York, Dublin et Lyon. Des flagships qui reflètent parfaitement l'ADN de la Maison".

En tant que fervente défenseur des droits des animaux et des questions environnementales, la Maison Rime Arodaky n'utilise aucune peau animale, ni aucun élément testé sur les animaux dans la réalisation de ses créations (nous refusons de travailler la laine, les plumes, la fourrure, la soie, le cuir...).

Nous ne travaillons qu'avec des fournisseurs et des partenaires qui partagent notre vision d'un modèle économique sans cruauté. Nous pensons qu'il est très important d'être conscients et acteurs de notre consommation. 

Notre responsabilité sociale nous pousse à devenir une entreprise plus transparente, honnête et innovante qui inspire les autres à faire de même.
