IN PHOTOS: Francis Libiran's 25th Anniversary Fashion Show

Fashion designer Francis Libiran celebrated his 25th anniversary with 'Sterling' a fashion gala that showcases his incredible designs.

Last November 24 at City of Dreams, Francis Libiran celebrated his 25th anniversary as a designer with a fashion gala entitled Sterling

The night began with eager guests excitedly chattering over cocktails about the designer’s milestone and the show that was about to come. In celebrating both the brand and the beauty of Filipino fashion, Francis Libiran’s Phoenix collection for his 25th anniversary was inspired by the mythical creature. Francis saw the parallel between the mystifying phoenix and the brand itself, both continuously rising to the occasion and exceeding expectations.


Francis took to the international stage when he dressed Tyra Banks in 2012. His relationship with the iconic model would land his Hello Kitty couture collection and Creatures of the Night collection features in America’s Next Top Model. Not only did he become a name known and spoken by the fashion connoisseurs of the world, but he also began dressing stars from Hollywood.

While his Phoenix collection is a true testament to his devotion for Filipino fashion and his timelessness as a designer, the night also showed how he has always stayed true to his advocacies. At the Sterling fashion gala, Francis Libiran introduced his own line of perfumes that feature fruity, citrus, woody, and floral notes as created by Renato Lopena Jr. From his perfumes, part of the proceeds will go towards his support for children’s welfare, education, and development through his partnerships with CBN Asia and Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines. 


At the end of the night, the guests raised their glasses in a toast to Francis Libiran with each person awe-stricken with his collection, rich history, and Philippine artistry.

Stay tuned for our favorite looks from the runway.
