Zandra Lim at Crystal Bridal Fair

Friday, September 07, 2018

     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 on September 15-16. 

     The highlights of the bridal fair are the gala fashion show of Zandra Lim Designs on September 15 and a silent auction of the fashion show pieces on September 16. Proceeds from the sales of tickets to the fashion show and auction will go to charity. Even the bridal fair suppliers will donate part of their sales to charity.

     The proceeds will help fund the treatment needs of social service patients at the Cancer Institute of St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City. Lim shares, My husband Dr. Mars Imasa is an oncologist. He has always been confronted with delays and even premature termination of chemotherapy of cancer patients due to financial constraints, most specifically those who are marginalized.

     Lim and her husband have always espoused charity work without the fanfare. “The 15th anniversary of my presence in the wedding industry is a good opportunity to push a cause bigger than what we have been doing,” said Lim.

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.

The glass beads embellished lavender lace contrastingly compliments the ensemble. A very enchanting creation that also resembles a shorter version of a mermaid wedding dress.
