From humble beginnings in a modest atelier over two decades ago, the brand now takes a triumphant leap forward with the launch of its most expansive store to date. A sanctuary for fashion enthusiasts, this grand establishment promises an unparalleled shopping journey. Overflowing with pride, Francis Libiran himself radiates joy as he recounts the brand’s latest triumph.
“Growth is inevitable. It has become inevitable for us. So, opening our biggest store yet at Shangri-La Plaza is just another milestone that we achieved. And, we are aiming for a larger expansion in the future. This is a part of the expansion that we’ve always dreamt of. We are just happy that we can grow and build a legacy out of this brand.”

The store’s debut coincides with the unveiling of the much-anticipated Francis Libiran Bridal 2024 Collection. From timeless grace to contemporary allure, soon-to-be brides are poised to discover their dream gowns. As the -ber months and the festive season approach, Filipinos are swept up in a tide of love and anticipation, the perfect backdrop for union. Yet, in Francis Libiran’s realm, the romantic ambiance is perpetual, ushering in dreamlike weddings year-round. The distinguished designer pledges a vast array of choices within the new collection.
“This collection is a celebration of inclusivity. We took into consideration the needs and issues of all the brides that I’ve encountered in my two decades of designing wedding gowns. As I’ve progressed my aesthetic and style, I merged new treatments and signature aesthetic details with every bride’s specific needs. They can expect a wide variety of selections from this new collection that would fit not just every body type; but also different kinds of wedding setups.”
Even in his travels, Libiran keeps his creative gaze alert for inspiration. With an architect’s eye, he has long been captivated by architectural marvels, and this fascination now finds expression in his latest collection.
“When I was designing the Francis Libiran Bridal 2024 Collection, I took inspiration for the details from the architectural structures from my recent trip to India and Thailand. And, at the same time, merged it with different stories of the brides that I have encountered. It’s a culmination of different inspirations if I must say.”
Through the years, the Francis Libiran brand has become synonymous with descriptors like ‘peerless quality’ and ‘benchmark standard’ in intricacy, design, and comfort. For him, the finest fabrics and materials remain pivotal in crafting each piece of the latest collection.
“We have invested in finding the best of the best for the fabric and all the materials we use. Even with the manpower, we have the best of the best. It’s not just the fabric, but also the technique and the labor of love that are woven into every gown.”
The Francis Libiran Bridal 2024 Collection is set to catch hearts with its wearable designs. For the designer himself, it symbolizes yet another fresh chapter in the brand’s odyssey, harmonizing seamlessly with the launch of their largest store. It’s not only an array of bridal gowns awaiting brides-to-be, but a haven of inspiration and style at Shangri-La Plaza where they can explore this new collection.
“With the Francis Libiran Bridal 2024 Collection, I want to convey the message of hope and love that goes perfectly well together.
