At Vinka it is about more than just making a bride her wedding dress – it is a process of collaboration between designer and client to conceptualise and then bring to life her dream gown. From the moment you set up your first consultation to your final fitting, Anita and her team will be working together with you to combine industry expertise with your personal style and make your vision come to life.
Making your perfect... View more bridal gown is no easy task, needing to stand as a reflection of your individuality while complimenting your body like no other garment could, but with 60 years of experience as frontrunners in the bridal industry this is what Vinka is known for. All gowns are designed and sewn by hand in-house at Vinka’s Auckland atelier, so nothing gets lost in translation.
The process begins with a consult to discuss ideas and inspiration, which can come from anywhere, be it the stunning collection of original gowns and the incredible range of fabrics, beads and lace in the Vinka showroom or even your own imagination. The end result is a sketch, from which point the creation of the gown truly begins. Over the course of several fittings the gown is made to fit and flatter to perfection, so that come your wedding day you look and feel as amazing as you’ve always wanted.
Monday – Friday, 10:00am – 5:30pm; Saturdays by appointment

The minute I saw the Vinka website I dreamed about them making my wedding dress and as soon as I emailed Anita the dream became reality. I loved my dress from top to toe. It was absolutely incredible! Wish I could wear it every day. I wanted something a bit different and Anita and team could not have done a better job. Anita made the process so easy, fitting in appointments around my trips to Auckland. Anita is a design genius, incredibly talented and always professional. Thank you Vinka design for bringing by dream dress to life. xxx

Working with Anita at Vinka design was a truly great experience. From the moment I saw my dress I knew it was the one. Anita made me feel nothing but spectacular, right from the original concept through to the final design. Everything about dealing with her made me feel like an absolute princess and that there was nothing that could happen on the day that could take away from that magical feeling. Anita is truly passionate about what she does and it shows throughout every part of her work, right down to the smallest of details. My finished dress was more than I could have ever asked for and what the team at Vinka Design created was nothing short of amazing. I would like to thank the team for all of the work they put in to making my dress unique to me, I loved it. I would most definitely recommend Vinka Design for anyone wanting a dress made with love, just for them.
