Led by the famed fashion designer himself, the Francis Libiran brand unveiled its latest collection inspired by intricate mosaics, sexual passions, and intimacy at the LA Fashion Week 2022 in downtown Los Angeles on October 7.

Libiran’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection, entitled MOSAIC: A Collection of Textiles and Pleasures, is described as “a culmination of looks birthed by inspiring objects that entice the artistic mind, intricate mosaics, and beautiful human connection of sexual passions and intimacy.”

“I am very much exhilarated and euphoric to have accomplished this show seeing all of my hard work come to fruition. As the designs graced the runway with all the lights and stuff, I couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear. Truly, having no bias, this is one of the best shows I have ever enjoyed, and for that, I am honored and over the moon,” the fashion artist said.

Lines and structures influenced the conception of the latest release and were translated into wearable art pieces that are on brand and bring out the essence of Francis Libiran. The designer’s signature touch of art deco embroidery was a recognizable element in the standouts from the collection.

“I really wanted to still convey my identity by incorporating the styles I am known for with my interpretation of art. On the other hand, of course, I also tried and experimented with a lot of things—colors, fabrics—to give much more edge to this collection,” Libiran shared.
