Francis Libiran launches Paris-inspired Affaire de Coeur Bridal Collection
After his recent, much-publicized jewelry line launch, world-renowned Filipino designer Francis Libiran is once again topping the bridal scene with the launch of his latest bridal collection, ‘Affaire de Coeur.’
Inspired by the breathtaking beauty, ornate architecture and fresh foliage of The City of Love, Libiran, who himself found love in Paris, found it suitable to name the collection as such – meaning ‘a love affair.’ And because brides have a lasting love affair with their wedding gowns, the Affaire de Coeur Collection promises the beauty of moments and memories to last a lifetime.
Featuring a wide spectrum of ivory and off-white colored designs that is fit for church weddings, outdoor garden and beach settings, the Affaire de Coeur Bridal Collection is a versatile line that will compliment different body types. Made from tulle Chantilly lace, corded lace, Duchess satin, and Mikado silk, all boast of elegance and sophistication.
‘One of my visions for many years is to create an RTW bridal line that will be more accessible to a wider audience of brides,’ Libiran excitedly quipped. ‘Every bride deserves that glorious “defining experience” when choosing her most important outfit and my goal for this collection is to make it unique and memorable, thus creating a real-life fairytale experience,’ he added.
Another important consideration Libiran factored in is how different cuts of gowns pair with different body types. Therefore, as early as initial consultation, brides are already educated on what style and design fits their body type best.
Not left out are headpieces and accessories and the importance of how entourage gowns should pair well in creating the entire bridal ensemble. Colors range from pale dogwood in makaido fabric, to dusty blue and marsala colors.
Being a trained architect, Libiran’s collection is definitely ‘architecture in elegant couture’ and with the bridal season at helm, it is that time of the year to have that love affair one has been longing for – the Affaire de Coeur!
Francis Libiran Bridal is located at the 2/f of Greenbelt 5, Makati. Brides can purchase the gowns as RTW or Made-to-Measure, with the option to add embellishments or make alterations. Schedule an appointment to fit and enjoy refreshments such as tea, lattes or sparkling wine.
