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 so much for your beautiful work, I felt amazing and everyone was completely wowed by the dress :) It could not have been more perfect! And we had the most magical day, I have never felt so relaxed in my life!
We had the best day of our lives on Saturday, all in the dress you made me. It was absolutely incredible, superseded expectations, and I had so many incredible comments from people. I LOVE it. I loved it from day one, and my love grew for it so much over the course of you making it. You were absolutely heavenly to work with, and such a pleasure. I wish I was going through the process again!
