Designer Report: RIANI
The SUCCESS Story - It all started in 1968 Germany with RIANI founder Jurgen Buckenmair and his "Bucki" trousers. The bucki trouser became a huge hit in his hometown, with over 100,000 pairs sold. Jump 10 years and in 1978, Jurgen found that there was a huge demand for ladies separates. In 1991, the RIANI Head Office is in Schorndorf, Germany where the entire collection is designed, sold, and dispatched. RIANI is expanding and developing into an international brand. In 2011, RIANI is a global player and still continues to design and cut in Schorndorf. RIANI has production facilities in Turkey, Poland, Hungary, and Czech Republic, and up to 350 employees. The first RIANI store also opened in Schorndorf in 2011.
