Han Lim began his career as a fashion designer with a major garment manufacturer for menswear and womenswear, and last held the position of Branch Manager prior to pursuing his teaching career with the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in 2004.

His expertise in Instructional Design and Technology helps him to continuously explore how technology can assist and enhance learning for students in art and design programmes, such as through the use of Virtual Learning Environment, web tools and mobile apps. This had led him to develop an e-learning module for the Fashion Department at NAFA. He believes that a full online course is possible with future technology developments as well as a paradigm shift in future generations.

Han Lim has participated in the Shanghai International Fashion Competition in 2000 and 2001, competing with world-renowned designers and emerging as one of the top-ten finalists in the competition.
