The Vinka Design team are truly the best! Anita is a true creative with an exceptional eye for design. Anita made me a custom wedding dress, perfectly translating my mood board into what would suit me and ensure I felt my best on the day. The quality of materials and craftsmanship was fantastic and I will treasure my dream dress forever. Thank you Anita and
team!!

I cannot speak more highly of Anita and the team at Vinka Design. From the moment I walked in for my first consultation the panic of finding “THE dress” disappeared. Anita exceeded all my expectations and made the design process right through to the final fitting an enjoyable experience (which is no easy task when you’re as indecisive as me). I am absolutely in love with my wedding gown and cannot stop admiring it. It was an absolute honour to be a Vinka bride. I cannot thank Anita and the Vinka team enough xx

Nicole Aimee Jensen

Thanks to Anita and her wonderful team I had my dream gown designed. Anita helped me in choosing the right innovative design and guided me well from the first day I walked in. The entire journey with this team has been amazing. I was thrilled when the bridal dress was ready it was crafted to perfection and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Vinka Design for your wedding Gown needs.

Olivia Sutton

Wearing a bespoke gown.

I cannot fault my wedding dress experience with Vinka Design. When I first met Anita I was feeling a bit flustered about finding the right dress (after going to a few bridal shops with no success). From the moment I stepped into Vinka, I was put at ease and I knew Anita would be the one to help me create my dream dress. I found the whole process stress free and I completely trusted Anita. I always looked forward to fittings as she made things relaxed, fun and made me feel super confident! It was hands down the best part of my wedding planning :) Anita and her team were so accommodating (particularly with flexibility of fittings with me living in the South Island) and really went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect! Thank you so much Anita and team for helping me feel beautiful on my wedding day. You are all amazing and I can’t recommend you highly enough ❤️

I walked into Vinka, I just knew straight away that I was getting a dress from there. I decided to have one made for me, the ladies did such an amazing job! The details and time they put in to making it look exactly how I had visioned was perfect. Their bridal shop is really welcoming, nice music, all set up lovely and they made me feel comfortable during my times there. Anita the designer, she was awesome!! There was never a time she made me feel uncomfortable, her friendly kind personality is what you need for trying on your special wedding dress. Her communication via phone was always straight away, I never had to wait. Such a great experience, the dress was my dream dress and I can’t thank them enough!

Shanida Clark

Wearing a bespoke gown.

If i could choose more stars I would. Vinka Design deserves all the praise in the world! I chose Vinka for my wedding dress as I knew they were of the highest quality and had the most beautiful modern and traditional dress designs. I completely underestimated just how incredible my experience with them would be. I met with Anita in my first consultation to talk through ideas and try on dresses and together we came up with a design that was perfect for me. They made the process so incredibly easy, fun and exciting! I honestly could not have asked for a more flattering and beautiful dress for myself. This was all thanks to Anita and her highly skilled team at Vinka. Thank you for looking after me in such a spectacular fashion - it was the most incredible experience working with you and I will cherish those moments always! Even these words feel like a complete understatement of my immense gratitude towards Vinka Design!!

Eleanah Ryan

Wearing a bespoke gown.

I chose Anita and Vinka Design to help me design my dress as I wanted something unique and special and I only gave her 8 weeks to do it in. Not only was Anita incredible to deal with from the very
beginning and all the way through, making it such a fun process but her gift at being able to see the vision and make it all come together is exceptional. On top of this, her craftsmanship, the quality of her fabrics and meticulous attention to detail make her number one. I thoroughly recommend Anita and her superb team.

Karen Teague

Wearing a bespoke gown.

I could not recommend Anita and her team more! I struggled to find a wedding dress (tried on over 90 dresses between NZ, Sydney and Ireland) until I finally sat down with Anita and started talking through options/styles etc. Her attention to detail, honesty and invaluable experience were unparalleled and I knew straight away I was in the best hands. The time Anita gave me to ensure the dress was perfection (from the fit to placement of every bead to giving
honest feedback and guidance) was so appreciated. I loved working with Anita on my dress and I miss my weekly visits! Honestly the best experience I could have asked for. Thank you Vinka Design xxx

Katlyn Parker

Wearing a bespoke gown.

Thank you so much! I just have to say that Anita and the Team at Vinka have just been so remarkable. From the moment we first met Anita I knew she would help me bring my imagination to life. Designing and creating my wedding dress was such a special thing to be able to do and throughout the process Vinka made me feel so listened to. I couldn’t believe how spectacular my dress was and how it came from just such a small simple idea on paper. They have incredible vision and are such artists! I would 100% recommend everyone to entrust such an important thing with this very spectacular team!

Carla Lunt

Wearing a bespoke gown.

I had a wonderful experience at Vinka and couldn’t recommend Anita and the team more highly. From the professionalism experienced from my first consultation to creating the perfect dress and the communication on the wedding day and post wedding it truly all was a dream. Thank you so much and you are incredibly gifted at what you do!

Georgina Munro

Wearing a bespoke gown.

If I were to choose a dress again I would go back to Anita and the team at Vinka Design! They were all lovely and helped me figure out how to put all my ideas into one dress. I loved my wedding dress so much and it was all thanks to Anita. She was so much fun to visit for fittings and made me feel confident and relaxed xxxx

Working with Anita & The Team at Vinka was an absolute dream experience. They are so talented and their experience really showed throughout the process. They created the dresses of my absolute dreams and I couldn't be happier or recommend Vinka more! I will

Asha Diack

Wearing a bespoke gown.

The experience I received at Vinka was like no other. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted with the most amazing energy and champagne - and this did not stop throughout the entire experience.

 

Anita and her team made sure that I was comfortable and most importantly - that I looked beautiful. They are absolute masters of their craft and every detail is hand done and meticulous. The attention to detail that these women show is unmatched.

 

They make you feel so comfortable, happy and share in your hype in the lead up to your wedding. They made me feel like the most special bride and I truly trusted their experience and expertise throughout the whole process.

 

Their showroom, their pride and their passion for dress making is honestly something every bride needs to experience. Thank you so so much Anita, Helena and the team for making me feel so so beautiful on my big day.

 

I could never thank you enough. You truly understand brides and everything they want for their big day. You are AMAZING!

Tyler Pennell

Wearing a bespoke gown.

Without a doubt, my experience at Vinka Design was my absolute favourite part of wedding planning. When we visited the atelier for an initial consult, my Mum and I knew that we had to have Anita create my wedding gown. The Vinka gowns were unbelievably stunning and meticulously crafted, and Anita was so clearly passionate about what she does.

 

Although I found it challenging to settle on a design (these dresses are exquisite) I decided on one of Anita's designs, the Delta, with bespoke details. Anita encouraged me to communicate exactly what I wanted so that she could bring my ideas to life. She took interest in every little detail, took my questions and (many) requests seriously and made me feel beautiful at every appointment and fitting.

 

Anita and her team were so patient and went above and beyond to make sure that I got exactly what I dreamt of - and they completely knocked it out of the park! I could not have asked for a more beautiful, flattering gown that was so lovingly crafted down to the finest details. I am forever grateful to Anita and her team of incredibly talented ladies and I could not recommend them highly enough!!

Sarah Manoharan

Wearing a bespoke gown.

After having tried on wedding dresses at several places in Central Otago and Auckland, I was going to resign to buying a dress that I thought looked "fine" on me, as I thought that I mustn't have a body shape that suited a wedding dress, but then I came across Vinka Design.

 

Anita (the owner) made me feel very special. She listened intently to what I had in mind, and designed a beautiful dress with exquisite detail that I felt a million dollars in! She was always so friendly and welcoming, and nothing was ever a problem, despite the number of consultations that I had with her.

 

She has such a huge range of beautiful materials and wedding dress samples to inspire a custom made wedding dress. She also tailored everything to how I wanted it, including the short timeframe in between the date that the creation began and the wedding date.

 

If you're after a custom made wedding dress, look no further than Vinka, and you won't be disappointed.

Letitia Stenberg

Wearing a bespoke gown.

I absolutely recommend Vinka Designs. I feel in love with their gowns and my wedding dress was my absolute dream dress.
It was perfect for me and made me feel beautiful. I did not know where to start when looking for a dress, but Anita at Vinka Designs made the whole process fun, stress free and smooth. The level of detail on the dresses they design is insanely amazing and my dress turned out absolutely stunning.

Rebecca Edwards

Wearing a bespoke gown.

Anita and the team at Vinka are
wonderful. Always welcoming, friendly and efficient. Willing to work with you to make your vision a reality and they work fast too! Anita does not deviate
from her high standards in design and quality and is a great help with other necessary elements of your overall look!

 

Thanks so much for creating my beautiful dress! Highly recommend.

Ailsa Roche

Wearing a bespoke gown.

It was an honour to wear one of Anita's beautiful gowns. Anita goes above and beyond and made the whole process from designing to finishing touches fun and enjoyable - nothing was a problem (including 2.5 years of wedding postponements through Covid) and I absolutely adored the end result.

 

Thank you Anita and team for making my dream dress xx

Madeleine Nuttall

Wearing a bespoke gown.

Thank you, thank you, thank you(!) for bringing my dress inspiration to life. From first communication Anita you were warm, engaging and interested; I felt like you truly cared about helping me create my dream dress where others weren’t so fazed. You rode the wave of lockdowns and postponements with us and were always a supportive listening ear. I felt so incredibly chic and timeless on my big day and Graham absolutely loved me in my dress too (though somehow he thought I would have a big lacy piece on my chest –miscommunication there lol!) I can’t recommend you to others enough and I wish you continued success with your
beautiful atelier. xx

Chloe Walker

Wearing a bespoke gown.

I was lucky enough to have my stunning wedding dress made by Anita and her highly skilled team at Vinka Design. Anita made myself and my mum feel welcome in her atelier from day one, and guided us through the conceptualisation and start to finish of making the dress. It was really difficult to pick a style given they were all so gorgeous, but I fell in love with the soft feathers and detailed beaded bodice of the Genevieve gown. I know I'll look back on my wedding photos for years to come and will remember how beautiful I felt wearing my dress. Thank you so much Anita for helping this small town girl from Ashburton look so glamorous on her big day!

 

Ash Syme

Wearing a bespoke gown.

Anita truly created the dress of my dreams - it was beyond perfection and beyond anything I’d ever seen or imagined! She was so easy and fun to work with and with her skills and experience, she could make anything happen. There were quite a few changes made to the (already gorgeous) dress, such as with the lace and style, but she assured me that anything could be done and she really followed through with the changes no matter how difficult or time consuming it was. She also gives the best advice and has the best eye - I’m so glad I listened to her with one of the changes made to the lace made as it turned out to be a highlight. Her attention to detail and perfectionism really showed in my truly one of a kind heavenly gown that fit me like a glove (after many alteration fittings and hard work). I am beyond grateful for her incredible service and for making me feel like a princess!

Ann Chia

 

The whole experience from the initial consultation to the visits to work through your on bespoke gown is all part of the incredible journey with Vinka Design.

 

Every detail was thought of and I could not have been happier
over my stunning dress. It made me feel like a Princess and I felt very special to be a Vinka Bride

Sharon Martin

Wearing a bespoke gown.

I can’t thank you enough for creating my gorgeous, stunning wedding day dress that far exceeded my hopes of feeling glam + confident while walking down that aisle!

 

You made the whole experience such a joy + a bloody good laugh to boot - and who knows - maybe there’ll come a time I could my own daughter through for her big day (should I decide to get a move on that front ... And I allow her to marry early haha) Lots of love xx

Ashleigh Keane

Wearing a bespoke gown.

Having a gown custom made from start to finish should be an exciting and special time for a bride and Anita made sure it was just that. Loved every appointment with Anita and loved the result.

 

My dress was based off another beautiful Vinka bride’s dress but there was no problem recreating a version of this for me. Anita and her team are exceptional at their craft and I truly felt like a goddess on the day. Their quality is hard to beat. Thank you again Anita xx

Victoria Hattrick

Wearing a bespoke gown.

Vinka design created my absolute dream dress.
I never thought I would have that “this is the dress” moment. But from the moment I first tried it on I was emotional. I have never felt more beautiful.
The whole process, from the first try on all the way through to my final fitting was an amazing experience. Anita brings fun to every stage of the process. Her and the team’s talent is evident from the get-go, with great care and attention to detail. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I wish I could do it all over again

Bex Smith

Where do I start?! Anita is just a
phenomenal designer! Anita and all her staff have been so amazing to work with
throughout the journey of creating my dream dress! I could not be more happy
with my bespoke dress as it was literally the star of the show! Anita has such a great eye for detail and would go out of her way to ensure that the dress was
completed to perfection! The dress was absolutely beautiful and i couldn’t recommend vinka design highly enough!! The most amazing experience I will cherish forever!

Dashunka Hettige

Wearing a bespoke gown.

I couldn’t of asked for a better service from Anita and the team at Vinka! They magically made my dress within a short two
months of me planning my wedding, which I thought would be impossible for a custom dress. Having such a short time frame meant I couldn’t overthink it and it was the best decision. Anita is one talented woman and she made me feel
so confident and at ease throughout the whole process, she truly turned my visions into a reality. Nothing feels better than a dress fitting your body
perfectly and feeling amazing on your wedding day. Thank you x

Rebecca Dodds

The staff, gowns and atmosphere make for an incredible experience & I absolutely fell in love with my dress, their gowns are stunning. Anita was very attentive, supportive and made the whole process so easy going. I am so glad I said yes to my dress here. HUGE thank you to Anita and team for a truly positive experience.

Andrea Basile

Wearing a bespoke gown.

Anita and the team at Vinka made me my absolute dream dress. I had a number of fittings and the service at each of them was amazing and really enjoyable. The dress was made so perfectly, and alterations were made to suit me up until the last moment with no hassle made from Anita and her team. I had so many comments on the dress on my day. Thank you x

Kelsey Merton

Wearing a bespoke gown.

I couldn't have imagined a more perfect dress for my wedding - throughout the design, fitting and ultimate execution they were flawlessly professional, always gracious and the product was divine. I explored several other avenues before I landed at Vinka, and I am so glad I did.

 

Their workmanship, eye for detail and access to the most opulent fabrics gave me something so special, a gown I will look back on and love forever.

 

Whilst having such a pedigree in her field Anita was approachable and easy going - and her trained eye delivered the dress of my dreams, perfect for my figure.

 

I certainly recommend a visit for all brides. If not to look at their incomparable designs and beautiful fabric selection, it is to feel as special as I did throughout the whole process.

Katharina Charles

Wearing a bespoke gown.

After looking through all the bridal salons in Auckland I ended up at Vinka Design. I had seen their dresses online
and through friends and as soon as I walked through the door I wondered why I ever bothered looking elsewhere.
The arrangement of laces and fabrics were far superior to anything I had seen. Anita let me look through all her dresses and different fabrics and together we designed my dream dress to perfectly suit my figure. Through all my appointments Anita made me feel fabulous, she worked the material so it hugged my body and slowly my dress came to fruition. The final product was perfect. Exactly like the drawing and dress I had pictured in my mind. The attention to detail and quality of the material and sewing was next to none. Throughout this whole experience we also had to deal with the covid pandemic. Anita not only made me feel completely trusting that her team will finish the dress on time, she was also an emotional support, reminding me that everything will be ok.
Thank you Anita and team, you went above and beyond my expectations, I am truely thrilled.

Maddi Mitchel

Wearing a bespoke gown.

Anita was truly my fairy godmother and made the process of creating a bespoke gown so enjoyable and special. From the moment I saw Anita’s concept drawing which beautifully encapsulated everything I wanted, I knew Anita would make me the most incredible gown. The process from start to finish was just as exciting as the final product.

 

Anita and her team’s perfectionism, knowledge and eye for detail meant I was able to walk down the aisle in a dress that not only looked gorgeous, but was also very ‘me’ in every way. This is what makes having a bespoke dress made at Vinka so special -Anita will work with you to ensure you look and feel the most incredible on your special day.

 

Thank you Anita and your dream team for making my dream gown and very special
veil come to life. I cannot thank you all enough!

Janet Liu

Wearing a bespoke gown.

Thanks to Anita and her team I had my
dream gown! We faced a few challenges with lockdown delays and then we were surprised with the news we were expecting twins! Anita and her team effortlessly accommodated the twins within my gown and went over and above to ensure the dress was perfect for our new wedding date! The whole time I felt reassured and relaxed and knew I was in great hands and clearly anything was possible! I would recommend Vinka Design for your wedding gown and a fab experience to go with it!

Ana Dodunski

I can’t recommend Anita and the team at Vinka Design enough!

 

I was torn between two styles, and they gave me the best of both worlds: combining a beautiful simple style, with a long detachable train. I was quite indecisive and fussy, and they took it all in their stride! Thank you for being so patient with me! The final result was absolutely perfect - the fabric, detailing, and fit was impeccable. Thank you for creating my dream dress and being so wonderful throughout the whole process xxx .

Steph Batchelor

Anita and the team at Vinka design are absolutely incredible at what they do! Anita worked with me to create my wedding dress and I couldn’t have been happier with the result. My dress fitted me absolutely perfectly (Anita has amazing
attention to detail and ensured that the dress truly was perfect) and it was such a dream to wear on our wedding day! Throughout the whole process I felt like I was in such capable hands and Anita has the creative eye to help you through the decision making process as you go. Thank you again to the team for making my gorgeous wedding gown!

You guys are great and I will forever be recommending Vinka to brides looking for that perfect dress!

Anita and her team at Vinka Design created the most beautiful dress for our Wedding Day. The whole process was so easy and they instantly make you feel gorgeous when you put on your dress.

We think the end was result was simply stunning xx

Stephanie Watts

Anita and the team made me my dream dress. Everyone loved my dress. The whole experience was incredible. Anita made sure to design my gown around what I wanted with suggestions on how to make it perfect for my body type. If you are looking for a incredible wedding dress you must visit Vinka Design.

Harriet Morris

Wearing a bespoke gown.

We have special moments in life which become lasting memories and one of those is of course getting married. For many brides, the most exciting, daunting and enduring memory is choosing her wedding gown - not just because she wants to look beautiful, but because that gown is a reflection of both her as an individual, and her desire to express herself to her loved one and others on her wedding day. Choosing the appropriate gown to create and reflect that sentiment requires partnership and an ability to understand both the bride-to-be's unique personality and form. Without a doubt, Anita and the entire team at Vinka Design have nailed that formula and offer the most wonderful experience and end product - genuinely custom made gowns for the discerning bride. I felt like part of the family at every step of the way and nothing was too much to ask, create or tweak along the way. Priceless memories were not only created on my special day, but during the process and I can’t recommend Anita and the team more highly! x

Rachel Forbes

I had the absolute pleasure of having a custom dress created by VInka Design and cannot speak higher of Anita & her team. Their level of expertise is second to none and I loved every second of the process, right from the initial consultation and through to the final fitting. If you are looking for something uniquely beautiful for your big day then you have to see what the fuss is all about xx

Chloe van Diepenbrugge

Working with Anita to design my dress was the best experience. When you first walk into their showroom you have an instant jaw drop moment because there are so many stunning dresses on display. She also made the process super easy and stress free which is what you need when you are planning a wedding. It needs to be enjoyable and exciting and this is what Vinka are all about. I think I had 5 appointments in total and this is to make sure your dress is perfectly tailored to your figure and my dress was nothing short of amazing. I would highly recommend Anita and the Vinka team to any bride I know :)

Rachel Firman

From the moment I met Anita I could see how skilled and passionate she is about her designs and how important it is to her to ensure all her brides feel beautiful and special on their wedding day. The dresses from Vinka are actually made in house by their team and to your measurements, unlike other places where you are unknowingly buying a dress that was made offshore to standard sizing and then is being altered to fit you. So the end result from Vinka is a stunning NZ designed AND NZ made gown that fits flawlessly and is the dress of your dreams. I am SO in love with my dress. It fits me perfectly and is more beautiful that I could have hoped for. I think every single guest at my wedding asked me where it came from and who made it - even the men! Everyone wanted to touch the lace and everyone wanted to know where I found such a stunning dress. Anita and her team achieved what they set out to do - I felt truly beautiful and special. What more could a bride ask for?! Anita, from the bottom of my heart thank you so much for making my dream dress for me and for making the entire process so enjoyable, relaxing, reassuring and fun. Your skills are just incredible. xx Sarah

Sarah Morell

My dream dress which Anita so beautifully created was just PERFECTION. Her attention to detail makes each dress she creates a bespoke masterpiece. Each dress is made to fit to your body (not like the other dress shops where you are buying off the hangar!), and you are not limited by what you see on her shelves - if you want to change the lace, style or if have your own design in mind, Anita will make it happen!

 

I felt like a princess on our wedding day and wish we could do it all again just so I can slip into my dress again! (Might just do that anyway so for those coming around for coffee unannounced don't be surprised if you see me dressed in white!)

 

I cannot thank Anita and Helena enough for their amazing service!! Whenever I was uncertain about anything they gave me good, genuine advice. I could not recommend them more if you are looking for your dream dress!

Anita and team I cannot thank you enough for creating my dream wedding dress (at short notice)!

 

I had no idea what I wanted when I walked in the shop. But I knew as soon as I met Anita I wanted her to make my gown, and it is an experience I will never forget.

 

My dress on the day was just so perfect, from the cherry blossom lace to the way it moved in the wind I am utterly delighted.

 

Thank you again

I don’t know how to thank Anita and her team from Vinka Design enough. I and everyone at the wedding was madly in love with my dress. When I first started looking for dresses, I found it hard to find the right dress for my size, I tried on so many and nothing got me excited....until I walked through the doors at Vinka Design. As soon as I met Anita, I knew this was the place, her professionalism, exciting attitude, fun and loving personality made every fitting enjoyable. She never made me worry about my size or shape. My dress was perfect, absolutely beautiful. At the very last fitting I didn’t want to take it off. You could see the amazing detail and care that went into it. I will always recommend Vinka Design as they helped to make my day the most special/amazing day I could ever have asked for. Thank you, thank you, thank you. xx

Would highly recommend going to see Vinka Bridal if you are looking for your dream wedding dress. Anita was a charm to work with and was all ears about every little stitch and snip I wanted.

I walked in found my dream dress and didn't look anywhere else.

She was uplifting and also made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole procedure which made me excited for every visit I had.

Thank you so much Anita!!

Soo happy with these people. Besides being great to work with, they're efficient and do an amazing job. What helped hugely was having the fabric and a large selection of laces already there to select from. Only needed 3 or 4 fittings including the initial consult and came home with the dress of my dreams. THANK YOU Anita and team!

As an, ahem, "older" bride getting married for the second time, I had a very good idea of what kind of dress I wanted to wear, so instead of traipsing through countless bridal stores I contacted the gorgeous Anita at Vinka Design. The whole process from consultation, design sketches, choosing from an exquisite range of laces and fabrics, the fittings and finally trying on my finished gown was so much fun and stress free! The gown that Anita created for me was stunning. It was flattering to my body shape, sexy without being overly revealing, fitted me like a glove and most importantly was comfortable to wear! Anita and her team are incredibly talented, seemingly unflappable and the quality of workmanship is superb. Because I knew the dress fit me so well, I felt confident and relaxed on our wedding day and the compliments I received were endless. I cannot recommend Anita and her amazing team of craftswomen highly enough for a gown that is uniquely yours, expertly constructed and will wow your partner, family and friends!

To the beautiful Anita. Thank you for making me feel like a princess on my big day. Planning a wedding certainly isn’t easy, but the process was made so much better with the weekly appointments with you! You have such a kind and gentle soul and I really treasure my process of making my dress with you. You will always hold such a special place in my heart. Much love.

Walking into Vinka design for the first time was just breath taking! Looking around and seeing so many outstanding gowns was a very cool feeling. I knew I was in the right place!! Having Anita make my wedding dress was just the most incredible experience - everything was so stress free. She knows exactly what will suit your body shape and how to make you look perfect for your special day. From start to finish Anita looked after me, I found it hard to choose the final dress as there were multiple that I wanted! The end product was the most STUNNING gown that I was absolutely stoked with. I couldn’t stress enough how amazing this experience was!! And completely recommend Vinka Design to help you find your perfect gown. Thanks again Anita for all your hard work to make my dream gown

I could not recommend Anita and her team at Vinka Design enough. Anita created the most beautiful gown for my wedding day. I had so many comments from guests on how stunning it was and asking where I got it. It was such a wonderful experience from initial consultation and sketches through to picking the lace and seeing the final design come together. Their craftsmanship is incredible, fabric and laces are exquisite and the fit was just perfect. I felt a million dollars on the day and could not have been happier. Anita – your dresses stand out a mile from any other and you nail the fit every time, which is so important.

Anita is the most beautiful person inside and out I have ever met! She made choosing a dress a really wonderful experience, and there were so many exquisite designs to fall in love with! My Ivy dress fitted perfectly and I have never felt so gorgeous in all my life. It was comfortable from the moment I put it on to the very end of the night. The material is top quality and the design was perfect down to every stitch, it stood up to the Manawatu wind and rain and looked amazing every second. Thank you so much to Anita and all your team and Vinka.

I was blown away by the exceptional customer service and incredible talent from Anita and the team at Vinka Design. I highly, HIGHLY recommend others to go to Vinka for their wedding dress – don’t look anywhere else! At the first meeting, Anita was able to put all of the ideas I had in my head, down on paper and sketched the dream wedding dress for me within a couple of minutes. I was SO impressed! From there, the process was super enjoyable and stress free. Vinka Design knows how to enhance your best features and was able to design a dress of the highest quality to fit my body perfectly. The end product was freaking fantastic. The dress was absolutely stunning and exceeded all of my expectations. Words can’t do it justice to describe how I felt and how the dress looked on the day. Thank you so much Anita and team – you absolute legends! Vinka Design is so special and unique and certainly stands out from the rest. Thank you thank you thank you! 💕

Then I met Anita... Right from the first meeting, I knew that I would end up with a beautifully crafted dress that I loved and would feel totally comfortable in on my big day. I appreciated that Anita never made me feel rushed or stressed and she put me at ease and every time I went for a fitting. I especially love that Vinka's dresses are designed and created in the very next room. Anita gave expert advice to create the most flattering design and I ended up with a dress even better than I had imagined!

I came across Vinka Design when I first started gathering wedding dress inspiration. After pouring through endless photos of gowns online, and trying on my fair share of nice dresses at other stores that just weren’t ‘the one’, I had a strong feeling that I would find that dress at Vinka, and I did! I absolutely adored my gown, it was so perfect, and I had so many compliments on the day. Anita was so fabulous to work with, she made my dream dress a reality and put my mind at ease which is exactly what an anxious bride to be needs. Anita knew what styles suited my body shape best and worked with this in mind. You can trust that she will only put you in something that looks stunning on you. I could not recommend Anita and her team more!

Anita's knowledge guided me to finding the perfect wedding gown. Anita is so passionate and lovely and goes above and beyond to deliver the perfect gown. My beautiful gown was so perfect and I love it so much- it fitted me like a glove. There is nothing more special then seeing your gown going through the stages of being made. Anita's attention to detail, passion, creativeness is AMAZING and I am so truly grateful that she was able to make my gown. Thank you Anita and the team at Vinka.

I had an idea in my mind of what I wanted in a dress but I couldn’t find it. After visiting some wedding dress shops I was left feeling disappointed and a little disheartened. I hadn’t wanted to spend a lot of time shopping but wasn’t having a lot of luck in finding a wedding dress. My last appointment was with Anita and she did not disappoint. The initial meeting was so easy, comfortable and fun. I tried on a few dresses and described to Anita the elements of each that I loved, she grabbed out her drawing pad and began to sketch. There was my dress on paper within an hour of meeting Anita! It was a hassle free process from there and going in for fittings and chatting with Anita was always a lot of fun. The end result was stunning, it was just what I had imagined and more. Anita is incredibly talented and makes you feel so comfortable throughout the process, I couldn’t recommend her more.

I just wanted to take the time to write you the BIGGEST thank you for creating my beautiful wedding dress. You were a dream to work with. I was so nervous about my dress at the beginning not being the 'typical' body shape, but not only was the dress divine, the process working with you was a total treat. You made me feel like an absolute goddess throughout. My dress fit like a glove and I felt sensational in it all day and night - I didn't want to take it off! Also you were right, people were shocked to discover I had a waist and the number of compliments I got on your design was incredible. So once again, thank you, thank you, thank you. Now that it is all over I'm enjoying following all your latest creations on Instagram whilst wishing I could wear my dress again, ha!

I'm not sure I have the words to do justice to how amazing Anita and her team at Vinka Design are. I had heard stories about how stressful it could be finding the perfect wedding dress, but from the moment I stepped inside the studio and met Anita I knew I would be wearing a Vinka gown on my wedding day. The whole process was so easy right from the beginning; the hardest part was choosing a gown from the wonderful collection of designs made from exquisite fabrics and laces. Anita created the most beautiful wedding gown for me. The dress was so much better than I'd dreamed; it fit like a glove and I felt absolutely incredible wearing it. I lost count at the number of compliments received throughout the day about how gorgeous my dress was. I can't thank Anita and her talented ladies enough. If you are planning your special day, I would highly recommend a visit to Vinka Design - you won't regret it!

WOW! How do I even put into words just how amazing my dress, experience and wedding day was, because of Anita and her team. My dress was simply perfect for me, and somehow Anita knew that. From day one she made me feel at ease trying on gowns I would not usually try, her team are so professional, yet passionate, warm and bubbly and you just can't help but enjoy being around them and feeling like the most beautiful woman and bride to be. I was so excited to be able to see the process of the dress being made, and appreciate the hard work these ladies put into it. The end result was so stunning and it was MINE. Everyone complimented me and my dress and I felt so GOOD. I would tell every bride to be to go see Anita!! Her dresses are like no other and they really are the most amazing people who want to see you find your perfect gown. THANK YOU!

Every single gown in the shop was just stunning and a real inspiration it was so hard to choose, but with the help from Anita I got myself the most beautiful gown of all. Thank you all so much, I felt like the most beautiful bride...I had people asking me where it was from as it was just gorgeous. I can't stop looking at it and just want to wear it all over again.

Before I was even engaged I had planned out my dream wedding dress in my head. After hearing my mum rave about 'Vinka Design' I made an appointment with Anita immediately and from the moment I stepped into her studio I knew my dream dress would be a reality. I cannot recommend Anita and her team enough. You ladies went the extra mile for me hand stitching every single flower onto the most perfect piece of lace .. and then stitching even MORE when I asked for it. I never heard the word "No" or "I cant" you created the most perfect gown for my day and I felt like a powerful, beautiful "I can do anything" Bride. As stressful as weddings can be my wedding dress was the last thing on my mind because I knew I was in more than capable hands. Thank you Anita for being so warm and funny and welcoming, making all the awkward niggly fittings a piece of cake and getting every last bit of fabric to flow. I am obsessed with my dress, I wish I could wear it again! thank you thank you thank you! - Candice xoxo

I visited the team at Vinka after having already purchased a wedding dress which I was having serious doubts about. Despite knowing that I already had a dress (and the purchase of a second was probably unlikely), they had all the time in the world for me. Like all their work, the dress which they ended up designing was stunning, and even better than I had imagined. I absolutely loved it. During the fitting process I found out I was pregnant; Anita took this in her stride and dealt with my changing shape in such a considerate and understanding manner with not a hint of frustration. I could not recommend Anita and her team more highly; their attention to detail and passion for the dresses they design and make is second to none.
