Featuring Vinka Design
Established by Vinka Lucas, an entrepreneur who paved the way for modern bridal design and haute couture evening wear in New Zealand starting from the early 1960s. The label’s founding principles of New Zealand made design and an emphasis on creating beautiful, timeless wedding gowns have endured through the decades and today Vinka Design stands alone in its heritage of design and romanticism. The award-winning work of Vinka included distinguished clientele from the worlds of opera, stage, royalty, diplomatic circles, beauty pageants and special charity events. Over recent years Vinka Design has become a family business and today Vinka Design is led by Vinka Lucas’ daughter Anita, a talented designer and former model. Anita understands the importance of enhancing your best features and providing exceptional design creativity along with an emphasis on customer service which Vinka Design is famous for.

Thank you so much for creating my dream wedding dress. You made the whole process really exciting and stress-free. It was so nice to know that someone I trusted completely was making my dress and I had no doubts that you would create something that I would love. I felt so happy to wear it on my big day.
Finding a wedding dress for some is a young woman's dream, for others it's about unifying a lifetime commitment in the most desired of gowns, and for those like myself, it's about searching for the ultimate fashionistas of all bridal fashionistas in producing a statement piece to lure and captivate the attention that surrounds you in reclaiming your voice and intellectual prowess as a woman. Vinka Design is New Zealand's very own Vera Wang, Christian Dior and Elie Saab intertwined in the one. The brainchild behind the most expensive garment I'll ever possess is remarkably indulgent in her creativity and thus, stunningly adorns the embodiment of womanhood through her designs. Thank you Anita, for reinstating who I was before I claimed the label of a mother, and for curating the most beautiful bridal gown I've ever feast my eyes upon.
There are no words! You created the most stunning gown for me - it was an honour to wear it, I felt so gorgeous and your collective workmanship was exceptional!! It has been a pleasure getting to know you Anita and I'm happy to now call you a friend!
