Francis Libiran's Beautiful Dreamers Make your dream gown come to life with his new bridal RTW line.

A master of whimsical construction, Filipino designer Francis Libiran is no stranger to fantasy.

This month, every girl's dream wedding dress may literally be in arm's reach as he opens up his first bridal shop at the Peninsula Manila.

Inside this month's issue, we talk to Francis about the things that make him think, tinker, and design - accompanied by a gorgeously ghastly editorial featuring his RTW stunners.
