A Happy, Dreamy Wedding: The Francis Libiran Bridal 2022 Collection

With the revival of weddings in full swing, Francis Libiran gives fans a glimpse of his upcoming 2022 bridal collection.

Once upon a time, I professed my vows to the person I love—away from the buzz of the city. There is something about destination weddings that make them so special. Maybe it’s because it feels like a getaway with your loved ones, but all the same, running away together intimately is just as extraordinary.

Yearly, I introduce new designs to my clients. These changing times allow me to adjust to the requests of those who have put their faith in me. And this year, the unorthodox wedding destinations have inspired me to conceptualize my latest release for my wedding arm, Francis Libiran Bridal (FLB).

The Story Behind Every Style

My new collection features eight different styles—each with a unique story that inspired it. What’s more, I created them with great versatility, so that they could be used for both grand and intimate weddings outside the city.

Thus, the 2022 Francis Libiran Bridal’s collection drop includes Angela, Adrienne, Aprille, Abigail, Clarisse, Emerald, Hyacinth, and Precious.

Angela

When I hear the name Angela, the first thing that pops into my mind is someone who is generous and sympathetic. I imagine her love story to be very giving and loving, and that this kind of person deserves a wedding dream come true. Angela is a ball gown with a structured bodice and side draping accents, making any wearer look like a princess.

Adrienne

Adrienne is a name I associate with intelligence and grace—one who is highly intuitive. She is someone who knows what she wants and quickly embraces it. This is a gown that is crafted steadily with Mikado silk, so it can be as sure and balanced as a bride’s honest vows.

Aprille

Aprille is a name that I always hear in movies or read in books. So, I figured that Aprille should be a storyteller that finds unconditional love from a person who willingly accepts who she is. And there, they bask in each other’s perfectly imperfect world. This style looks spirited and lively with its soft tulle layers and detachable sleeves, which do not shy away from opulence.

Abigail

The name Abigail is something I link with spontaneity and charm—very fitting for someone who would willingly elope with her forever love. I intended for this gown to be simple yet sensually sophisticated, so it has a long slit to show a bit of skin, complete with uniquely crafted sleeves.

Clarice

Clarice is a name that I’ve associated with clarity and preciseness. When she wants something, she really pursues it. So, I conceptualized a spaghetti-strapped a-line ball gown—embroidered with Italian lace. It may be a simple wedding piece, but it contains a solid elegance that implies, “I’ve never been more sure about the person I love.”

Emerald

Emerald is the name of a precious crystal—usually associated with royal icons, so I envisioned something very regal for this dress. It is a ball gown filled with flamboyantly crafted details all over it, so it really looks like something a queen would wear. This is perfect for those who want to celebrate their love story like a real-life fairy tale.

Hyacinth

When I hear the name Hyacinth, I connect it with eclectic allure—because it’s not a name I hear every day. This is why I figured that I should think out of the box for this piece. This serpentine gown is created with drop shoulder sleeves and a beautifully layered bridal train to add a delicate aspect to it.

Precious

I ended the collection with the name Precious, which is self-explanatory. She is someone who is cherished by her loved ones, especially her future husband, for the love that she gives is priceless. It is a serpentine gown comprised of carefully embellished Italian lace and floral appliques—truly a unique find for someone so loved.

On Choosing Your Dream Wedding Gown

When I created this line, I envisioned the stories that I can connect to them. I thought of how this will contribute to stories of unrelenting love. Sometimes, I find myself tearing up whenever I remember past clients who have told me how something I created contributed to their love story. This remains as my inspiration to do something worth anticipating next time.

For now, Francis Libiran Bridal’s 2022 stock drop is available for their respective wearers! You can visit our atelier at Ayala Malls Greenbelt or visit our Instagram page @francislibiranbridal to book an online appointment. I am looking forward to being the modern fairy godmother in your forever love story.

Choosing a gown for your special day is crucial because you are basically selecting a dress that represents you and your reasons for promising yourself to your better half. Thus, relish, own the moment and remember that you are here because you’ve finally found the person worth settling down with.

I can’t wait to see your new beginnings unfold!
