The trendy Brazilian flip-flop sandals Havaianas and the ingenious Philippine fashion designer Francis Libiran have partnered for a limited edition collection to provide people colourful and nationalistic expressions for their everyday journey. When the exclusive distributor Terry S.A. brought the brand to the country in 2003, Havaianas was able to adorn the soles of Filipino consumers, imprinting itself on the local culture.

Known for his amazing detailing and silhouette, Francis definitely did not disappoint with his wedding collection that stemmed from the theme, Weddings Made in Heaven. The dresses showed different kinds of embellishments, cuts, and hues of white that range from nude to stark. The menswear collection was just as stunning with detailed barong and tux that that cater to every groom's want and need.

Tyra Banks was spotted in an exquisite Francis Libiran creation at the 2014 Flawsome Ball at Cipriani Wallstreet in New York. The former Victoria’s Secret supermodel personally selected Francis Libiran to design a stunning gold leather cut-out serpentina gown in gazaar fabric, embellished with copper metal studs, which perfectly showed off her curvy figure.
The annual Flawsome Ball is dedicated to Tyra's T-Zone Foundation, a New York City girls club that just proves how one’s flaws can be awesome (flaws + awesome = flawsome!).
