VINTA Wedding Diaries: An Intimate, Tear-filled Affair in Toronto
A Note from Our Founder and Designer
Don’t know if you’re into astrology and star signs as much as we are, but a new moon means new changes are happening. And boy are there a ton of changes happenin’ at VINTA (all good ones, tho)!
First off, if you’re reading this, THANK YOU for being super amazing and patient with us as VINTA grows. It’s just getting better and better (we promise), and we couldn’t have done all this without our loyal customers and VINTA-loving followers.
That said, we just wanted to share a quick update on the new and exciting changes happening on our end.
Slow Fashion is the Only Fashion
VINTA Wedding Diaries is a new series that takes us behind the scenes of a custom VINTA Filipiniana wedding.
Jenn Nucum and Tiffany Trinidad first met at the age of 18, during their undergrad for Media Studies at the University of Guelph-Humber in Etobicoke, a district west of downtown Toronto, Canada. Jenn specialized in Journalism; Tiff specialized in Photography/Image Arts. During their first year, they ended up in many classes together and started befriending mutual classmates within the program. They ran into each other quite frequently, though they were never formally introduced to each other.

Slow and steady wins the race — and in the fashion industry, it wins all around.
You may or may not have heard about the “slow movement” — it started in the 1980s as a protest against the first McDonald’s opening near the Spanish Steps in Rome, Italy. The protestors’ tagline: “We don’t want fast food… we want slow food.”

The Filipiniana Dress: The Rebirth of the Terno
One of the reasons we created VINTA
was to bring the beauty, grace, regality and culture of Filipiniana fashion back into the conversation — so that people like you can find us. And there’s nothing more glamorous and fashionable than a Filipiniana wedding.
Spring Summer 2019: Fashion Trends We Love
You may have seen it in old photographs of your mom or grandmother.
You may have seen it in history books or random clips of Imelda Marcos visiting the White House in the ’80s. You may have seen it in Filipino beauty pageants or worn by Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray. The stunning, resilient, unabashedly opulent terno dress.
