LYNDARAHIM KUALA LUMPUR is a specialist fashion designer in the bridal industry. Datin Lynda Rahim decided to start the company to cater for modern wedding dresses. Before starting the company, all she could find were traditional dresses that lacked sophistication. So she did what any reasonable woman with a rolodex full of high-powered fashion insiders would do; she designed her own bridal line.
Datin Lynda opened a luxury salon in 2008, showcasing her new bridal collection. But the elegance, detailing, and freshness of her line quickly won her kudos from her customers, and a wedding dress superstar was born and now she is a household name.
Today, Datin Lynda is perhaps the best known wedding dress designer in the business. She has expanded her business to include wedding gifts (Hantaran) and wedding thrones (Pelamin) all touched by her luxurious and sophisticated style.
Most notably, Sari Yanti (TV personality and actress) and Yatt (model, TV personality and actress) have worn Datin Lynda’s lace dress for for their weddings and this designer is continuously the choice of celebrities.
In the tradition of Paris couture, she uses rich fabrics, luxurious details such as hand beading, and the best craftsmanship. Datin Lynda’s Wedding Dresses skirt the fine line of applying modern touches to traditional styles, avoiding both harsh modern looks and syrupy old-fashioned sweetness. As her design business has grown, the range has also grown. Today, a bride can find everything from sweet kebayas to unusual Victorian style dresses. She tells brides that they can be sensual, and in fact, this may be where she’s had the most influence on the wedding industry – her wedding dresses celebrate the body.
Datin Lynda’s Collection while certainly expensive, it’s within the range that many non-celebrity middle-class brides spend on their dresses. If this is still out-of-your budget, look at Datin Lynda’s package for dress rentals together with Pelamin and Hantaran preparations.
Datin Lynda’s Wedding Dresses are available at her flagship bridal salon at No. 251, Jalan Maarof Bangsar, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
