From Walking in Francis Libiran’s Bridal Shows, Chelsea Robato Now Wears His Creation Down the Aisle

Talk about a full circle moment! Content Creator Chelsea Robato has previously walked in Francis Libiran’s bridal fashion shows, so when it was finally time for her to walk down the aisle, it only made sense to wear his creation. And this bride definitely stunned us in her body-hugging, art deco inspired wedding gown.

“I chose Francis Libiran to design my wedding dress because I’ve been privileged to walk for him in his bridal shows and I’ve loved every wedding dress I’ve worn from him,” says Chelsea. “I told Sir Francis a little bit of what I want, like the overskirt and the neckline, but I left everything else to him. He knows my style and body type best.” The gown, in all aspects, is truly made for her! The long sleeves, the intricate beading, the silhouette all deserve a chef’s kiss.

We also had the chance to ask Francis Libiran himself about the inspiration behind Chelsea’s wedding gown. Find out more about the story behind this sensational piece as you scroll through these photos by Pat Dy!

Ben and Chelsea

"I’ve known Chelsea since she was starting out in the modeling industry. When she messaged me about making her wedding gown, I was really honored and thrilled. I know how she wants her style for her wedding gown, of course she wants it to be sexy, low neckline, and backless." Francis Libiran

"My inspiration for her wedding gown is Chelsea herself, her personality and how she carries herself." Francis Libiran

"I started with the silhouette which looks good on Chelsea and just put on the art deco patterns that I’m known for. The beading is made out of those patterns wrapped around Chelsea's body." Francis Libiran

"As a designer, of course, I feel that I’m part of that special day when they’re walking down the aisle. It’s such an honor to be part of that journey." Francis Libiran
