Here’s a sneak peek on Miss Philippines Catriona Gray‘s evening gown in Miss World 2016.
Catriona’s World Designer Dress is a creation of world-renowned Filipino designer Francis Libiran who described the gown as follows:
“A custom semi-serpentine sleeveless gown in fine soft tulle fabric. This gown is intricately embellished with Francis Libiran’s custom signature embroidery details with art deco and linear patterns that accentuates the silhouette of the wearer. This old rose gown is fully encrusted with dyed-to-match stones and crystals that provide rich texture and elegant sparkle.”
According to Catriona:
FRANCIS LIBIRAN is an A-list Filipino fashion designer and fashion icon whose works have been featured not in only in the Philippines but also in different parts of the world.
He was featured twice on America’s Next Top Model and Tyra Banks wore his creations several times just like Hollywood stars Gwen Stefani, Angela Bassett, Serayah Mcneill and Miss World 2000 Prinyanka Chopra to name a few.
Francis Libiran is also the man behind the winning gown of the first Filipina Miss World, Megan Young.
