All our consultations are taken by Anita herself, the creative director and head designer at Vinka with more than 40 years’ industry experience in bridal couture. Together, you will begin your journey of making your dream gown a reality. Anita will guide you through our extensive collection of gowns, all crafted in-house by our expert team of talented bridal couturiers, as well as our boundless array of imported fabrics and laces from our in-house fabric library. Consultations are 90 minutes in length, during which time you will discuss the style and feel of your wedding and examine ideas and looks you are interested in. Our Atelier has a vast selection of veils and accessories to experiment with every idea so that you can look and feel every possibility. Each element of your consultation will help you bring your vision to life, concluding with a custom sketch, hand-drawn by Anita.
