Dando of London
Training in design, pattern cutting and dressmaking in Singapore, Christine Dando was highly influenced by Charles and Diana’s wedding in 1981 and opened her first bridal boutique in the UK not long after. Specialising in bespoke gowns she was recruited to move to Canada as Head Designer and Creative Director for the Alfred Sung range for Jai International and Jade Daniels. She was instrumental in developing the Callista collection for brides with curves and launched a collection, Christine Dando, under the Jai corporate umbrella. Dando London is the culmination of Christine’s experience and passion which is poured into the style, cut, fit and hand finishing of each dress. Using the finest quality fabrics and lace Dando London highlights attention to detail and make sure that brides feel effortlessly beautiful. Drawing inspiration from a variety of diverse sources from Old Hollywood through to the natural world, her philosophy is to focus on the cut and fit of each gown to ensure brides are comfortable. Christine and Dando London gowns can be seen on the TLC TV show ‘Say Yes to the Dress UK’.
