Award-winning fashion designer Jimmy Lim, is known as one of Malaysia’s and New Zealand’s star designers, and was awarded the prestigious title of Deutz Fashion Design Ambassador of the year at Air New Zealand Fashion Week 2004, where he represented the country as the Ambassador at London Fashion Week 2006. In 2017, Jimmy was invited to showcase in Busan Fashion Week. This year also marks the 10th year showing at Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week. 

Since launching the Jimmy Lim label in 1999, Jimmy has again pushed the boundaries of fashion with his latest collection featuring an energetic showcase of fresh new cuts, silhouettes and prints, reflecting attention to detail and meticulous craftsmanship. His designs are uniquely individual and inspired by his own experiences including nature, music, culture and tradition. The philosophy behind Jimmy Lim’s creations is to 'Play' without restrictions, enabling garments to be mixed and matched by the wearer to build a truly personal style.

Jimmy opened his first multi-brand flagship store at Publika Shopping Gallery, Kuala Lumpur in 2016 called 'Dream Makers Club'.

‘I wanted to step out from the norm to really push the envelope of the current fashion, to truly create something fashion forward and striking the balance of wearability and creative force’
