Francis Libiran: Bridal The concept may be foreign to Filipinos but bridal gowns have had ready-to-wear (RTW) offerings all over the world for quite some time now. Francis Libiran brings just that concept to Philippine shores feature a wide spectrum of ivory and off-white colored designs inspired by the breathtaking beauty, ornate architecture, and fresh foliage of The City of Love.
Francis Libiran, after the recently launched jewelry line, unveils designs fit for church weddings, outdoor garden, and beach settings, crafted to compliment different body types. Made from tulle Chantilly lace, corded lace, Dutchess satin, and Mikado silk – all boast of elegance and sophistication.
“It has been a vision for me, for many years now, to offer RTW bridal line that is focused to be more accessible to a wider audience,” Libiran shares “Every bride deserves that glorious ‘defining experience’ when choosing her most important outfit of her life. I wish to make it memorable and unique, thus, creating a real-life experience.”
It won’t be the same as sitting-down with Francis himself, anymore, as the RTW line offers the vision or trend for the first half of the year by Libiran with ‘customization’ options from bows, sleeves, trails, and accents to your hearts desire.
“Customers ask if I can be there to fit the gown on the day, but I have my staff explaining that this is retail, not the same as having couture done for you and your personality,” explains Libiran.
Perhaps one of the most important consideration for Libiran is how different cuts of gowns pair with different body types. The moment you step in to the store, highly trained and knowledgeable staff share what style and design fits their body type best.
Francis Libiran Bridal is located at the 2/f Greenbelt 5, Makati. Brides can purchase the gowns as RTW or Made-to-Measure, with the option to add embellishments or make alterations. Schedule an appointment to fit and enjoy refreshments such as tea, latte, or sparkling wine.
The Francis Libiran Bridal Affaire de Coeur collection will be featured at the upcoming Beginnings Bridal Fait in Crimson Hotel Alabang on 19th of August from 10am to 7pm.
He will also be at the Singapore Bridal Caravan on 27 August.
