Fashion Designer Suzanne Vinnik has captivated audiences across the globe and is one of the most influential women in classical music as an opera singer, community engagement leader, photographer, and now successful Creative Director & Fashion Designer behind the brand byVINNIK.
As an opera singer, some of her favorite roles as a leading soprano included the title role in Manon Lescaut, Nedda in Pagliacci, Mimi and Musetta in La bohème, Violetta in La traviata, amongst others, with notable engagements at Pittsburgh Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and on concert stages as a soloist throughout Italy, Norway (Her Majesty Queen Sonja in the audience), Russia and before members of United States Congress sharing the stage with President Joe Biden. Her parallel pursuit of entrepreneurial endeavors led her first to start Shoperatic, the largest specialized social media network and marketplace for all women in classical music. In addition, she is a photographer, guest columnist, and stylist and hosted "Diva Who Hustles," an online web series for The Dallas Opera Network during the early days of the pandemic in 2020.
Suzanne's love of fashion and desire to create her dream job on her terms inspired the launch of "byVINNIK," an ethically manufactured inclusive womenswear line made in Downtown Los Angeles with clientele all over the world including some of the biggest names in Classical Music, Broadway, and Television. As one of the few brands that cater to both original and plus sizes, her work is sought out and featured on Disney+, Netflix, RuPaul's Drag Race, and most recently on HBOMax's hit TV Show "The White Lotus"worn by Jennifer Coolidge in an episode nominated for an Emmy in the “Outstanding Contemporary Costumes” category.
