In this exclusive piece, Francis Libiran talks about the creative process that went behind the creation of his Spring Summer 2023 Collection.

I feel extremely happy talking about this new collection of Francis Libiran Bridal. After all, it’s a celebration of love and romance—a culmination of happily ever afters and cherished “I do’s”. All these beautiful love stories that have captivated me throughout my 23 years as a wedding fashion designer culminates into this line of beautiful and consequential creations, which I am proud to share with all of you.

Inspired by Love, Made with Love

As a person who has designed and created pieces for different kinds of women, it is no surprise that I have been inspired by a spectrum of brides who has fleshed out this diverse roster of gowns. Each piece represents a version of someone who has moved me in my career. These strong women have walked our atelier floors and contributed to my work and design flair.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting different kinds of brides. They have indeed sprinkled their own personality into these creations and they have done their part as inspirations. With the new Francis Libiran Bridal collection’s diverse set of silhouettes, each piece fits every kind of woman—no matter what shape, size, or personality—so every bride can find the dress of their dreams.

Aside from these influential people, tales about eternal love and undying affection also breathed life into these ten creations, since I have always been moved by narratives about two people finding their way into each other. Clients have shared love stories resembling a fairytale and some have suffered the tribulations of a soap opera. However, no matter how the journey went down, what’s important is what it came to be. And that very idea initiated all of these.

A Love Letter to Love Itself

What I adore about this collection is how accessible it is to brides who are usually anxious about their wedding gowns. I empathize with them since I’m sure they’ve dreamt of this big moment their whole lives and want everything to be perfect—down to the very gowns they wear.

I made this collection for the brides who rely on a more visual experience and worry about not seeing the design. With this, all they have to do is choose among the ten gowns, which they can customize to their body proportions and liking.

This new line of gowns is like my love letter to the brides who I have worked with, as well as love itself. And yes, it feels good to finally share this with the world. Without further ado, I present to you, my Francis Libiran Bridal Spring Summer 2023 collection.
