Style in full swing! Introducing the oversized swing coat (our signature piece and best design if we do say so ourselves) the Opera Coat! Channeling equal parts retro Hollywood glam and old New York sophistication, she’s a showstopper, clearly. Aside from being outrageously gorgeous, her number one talent is versatility. Play with the matching belt to change up the silhouette, cuff the sleeves, and turn her inside out for a completely new look. Designed in a luxe, weighty fabric that takes up space, she’ll deliver a spotlight-worthy personality however you choose to wear her. The black reverse side is super edgy with our new lightweight stretch charmeuse satin.

MEET THE DESIGNER

Suzanne Vinnik wearing kaftan with a dress formFashion 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.  In addition, many of her designs frequently are worn at significant red-carpet events, magazines, and performances worldwide by some of the most talented artists of our time. 

Suzanne holds a B.M. in Vocal Performance from Texas Christian University, with additional studies at Mannes College of Music and Otis College of Design. In addition, she is an alumnus of the Opera Studio of Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, Italy, where she studied and performed under the tutelage of Renata Scotto and The Dallas Opera's Hart Institute for Women Conductors where she was an Administration Fellow in 2019.

She enjoys sharing her knowledge on entrepreneurship, fashion, female empowerment, and classical music as a guest panelist a d keynote speaker at conferences and universities especially working with women to share the entrepreneurship journey. The best part of transitioning from singing opera to fashion is seeing how divas have blossomed in their confidence, wearing her designs of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds.
