Just Like Phoenix: Fashion Designer Francis Libiran Celebrates 25th Anniversary

BGC, Philippines — Filipino fashion creator Francis Libiran celebrated his 25th anniversary with a glam event dubbed as “Sterling”, an evening of fashion and purpose at the City of Dreams Manila November 24.

The fashion event put the spotlight on the “Phoenix Collection”, featuring 25 models who rocked the runway in couture masterpieces in color palettes silver, gold, green, black and red.

The Phoenix collection is inspired by “where the brand wants to take its flight into the future,” as well as flying with resilience above challenges.  

Intricate beadwork, sensual sihlouettes, some with voluminous ruffles and outlandish embellishments were featured in his latest couture work.

Libiran has been known for dressing up Hollywood stars such as Tyra Banks, Angela Bassett, Nikki Reed, Mena Massoud, Darren Criss and Billy Porter.

From his hometown Philippines, he has created couture for actresses Kim Chiu and Alexa Ilacad, and Filipina global beauty queens Miss International 2016 Kylie Versoza and Miss World 2013 Megan Young.
