Vinka Design takes its name from our founder Vinka Lucas MNZM, an entrepreneur who paved the way for modern bridal design in New Zealand starting from the early 1960s. Today this legacy is upheld by her daughter Anita, who has spent her life mastering her craft working for the label and who now stands at the helm. Our founding principles of outstanding New Zealand-made couture and an emphasis on bringing brides’ dreams to life have endured for more than fifty years, and today the Vinka label stands alone in its heritage of design and romanticism.
The understanding that a wedding gown is so much more than just a dress is at the heart of what we do. We know the significance of a bride’s gown for how she feels, and as creatives love the challenge of combining our expertise with our brides’ wants and needs to craft the perfect dress that represents her unique character and helps her feel her best on her special day. We look forward to working with you!
