Modern Brides Will Love Francis Libiran's Line of RTW Wedding Dresses
Aside from Francis Libiran’s creations gracing Hollywood red carpets as of late, he’s also been busy curating a new RTW bridal collection for his boutique in Greenbelt 5, Francis Libiran Bridal.
Francis describes the 2019 Bridal Gown Collection as dreamy and ethereal, with the heavily beaded and embroidered designs that Francis Libiran is so well-known for. Libiran launched his boutique in Greenbelt 5 back in 2017 after seeing an increasing demand for RTW bridal gowns in the Philippines.
“There will always be a market for couture, and designing couture bridal gowns is one of my greatest passions. However, we also have many brides who live abroad, are modern hard-working career women with busy schedules, or who simply want a lighter minimalist gown which are perfect for garden or beach weddings. Francis Libiran Bridal has something for all of these women,” says Francis.
In addition to the RTW gowns which can be purchased off-the-rack, Francis Libiran Bridal always has a designer at the boutique who can sketch on the spot and customize any RTW gown with add-ons like additional beadwork, embroidery, or even to make minor changes to the design of the gown.
“We allow brides to choose three gowns to fit during their consultation, which gives them an added benefit because they can actually see the gown on their bodies before selecting which one they’ll wear on their wedding day.” Fittings are by appointment only, and typically the weekend slots are fully booked, so booking in advance is highly recommended.
RTW bridal gowns at Francis Libiran Bridal range from P88,000-188,000+ and Francis Libiran promises the same luxurious experience and superior customer service that clients receive at his ateliers in the Manila Peninsula Hotel and at his atelier in Quezon City. The boutique is an extension of the Francis Libiran brand and Francis communicates closely with the designers at the boutique, advising the team how to best service the clients at the store.
Recently, Francis Libiran Bridal released a video, shot at Nara Hill in Tagaytay, featuring the 2019 collection:
Aside from bridal gowns, the boutique at Greenbelt 5 also features suits, entourage gowns, bridal lingerie, robes and accessories. The iconic headpieces have become one of the boutiques hottest items as well as the Francis Libiran Grooms, which launched in 2018, which features men’s suits with diverse color, a variety of high-quality fabrics and varying designs of Francis Libiran tuxedos.
The 2019 collection features a wide variety of entourage and cocktail gowns which have been flying off the racks as fast as Francis’ team can produce them. Many pieces from the 2019 Collection have already sold out, and more pieces are being produced. “There’s really a demand for simple gowns that women can wear to weddings, events, or even for prom. We always keep these types of gowns at our store as well because clients are always requesting them.”
