MEET THE DESIGNER
Suzanne Vinnik has captivated audiences across the globe and has been recognized as one of the most influential women in classical music as an opera singer, community engagement leader, photographer and now successful clothing designer as of May 2019.
As an opera singer, some of her diverse repertoire as a leading soprano includes 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 US Congress sharing the stage with President Joe Biden. Her parallel pursuit of entrepreneurial endeavors led her to first start Shoperatic, the largest specialized social media network and marketplace for all women in classical music. She is a published photographer, guest columnist, stylist and hosted "Diva Who Hustles" an online web-series for The Dallas Opera Network. Her love of fashion and desire to create her dream job on her own 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 TV.
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. 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. In her spare time, she enjoys co-producing events as a volunteer artist throughout New York City and Los Angeles with her favorite charity, Sing For Hope with whom she will design a rainbow piano to be donated as part of their national pilot program bringing the arts to underserved communities. She enjoys sharing her knowledge on topics relating to entrepreneurship, fashion and classical music as a guest panelist at conferences and universities especially working with women to share the journey of entrepreneurship.
