Lim is a BS Pharmacy graduate from the University of Santo Tomas and while she loved being a pharmacist, her love for fashion and design could not be denied. Her atelier Zandra Lim Designs was established in 2003 and since then, Lim has been considered one of the country’s top designers for bridal gowns. 

Lim studied at the Istituto di Moda Burgo in Milan, Italy, where she took Istilista di Abiti di Sposa (Fashion Design, specializing in Wedding Dress) and also took a course in Textile Effects at the University of the Arts, London-Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design.

But beyond these credentials, Lim has extensive experience on working with brides and listening to what they want to wear and how they want their weddings to be.

“Every bride wants to wear something special on her wedding day, be it simple, grand, or in between. That is where I come in, to create that special dress and make it a beautiful masterpiece,” said Lim.

Elegance is a trademark of any gown that comes from Zandra Lim designs, whether they are haute couture or from the Ready to Wed line. For haute couture, the design of each gown is unique to the bride, her personality and what she wants. Whether the bride wants beading all over her gown or just embroidery, she will get what she wants. The bride will walk down the aisle in a gown that she has envisioned and wished for.

Lim’s use of luxurious fabrics is perfect for her unapologetically feminine aesthetic.  Intricate detailing and sparkling embellishment make each gown a frame for the wearer’s beauty and elegance.

To mark her 15th anniversary as a bridal gown designer, Zandra Lim is giving back with Crystal Bridal Fair at Discovery Primea in Makati City this weekend. Proceeds from the event will go to charity.

Crystal aims to generate sales and donations in support of patients who are battling cancer. Admission to Crystal Bridal Fair is free. Door open at 6:00 p.m. today and at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow.

Crystal Bridal Fair is in partnership with Niceprint, Amantefleurs, Rhed Sarmiento Events, and Discovery Primea and is sponsored by Metrotech Projectors, LST Lights & Sounds, and Pikulyar Photo.
