Inspiration.. I must say anne looks awesome in this pic.. The drama.. Wow..:)
IMITATION! nahiya pa sya iniba kulay at d n gnawang tube dress haha
Ano ba yan sunod sunod na issue na imitation or inspiration. Sana mahighlight na lang yung mga unknown local designers na original at pinoy na pinoy. Shame on these "bigtime" designers.
congrats. gusto mo ng medal?
sige, pa-interview na kay Time Giver, kasi first ka... hehehe.
Congrats! Now go and do the laundry.-A
nakakaproud sa parents mo
Definitely an inspiration. napaka unfair naman pag sinabi nating imitation, hindi naman malayo magkaroon ng konting pagkaka parehas yung mga design ng mga designers. just saying :)
Inspiration .. Unlike the one with rajo laurel...
i say an inspiration and imitation.... atleast nag effort na i-tweak yung ibang part ng damit..
Nah. This is inspiration unlile nun ke RAJO
Francis had the exact same gown as the one Versace made on the top photo! Medyo inalis lang ng Francis yung detail sa may hips pero the fabric, the draping sa lower part ng gown & the cut are exactly the same! I forgot who wore that to the Star Magic Ball in 2011 pero parehong pareho talaga.
that i believe is the former and not the latter.
Galing, alam mo difference ng former and latter. And so? Mga comments dito minsan paartehan.
@5:54AM Mga comments dito minsan kajologan.

AnonymousJune 12, 2012 7:52 PM, to educate you, former refers to inspiration while latter refers to imitation. my gash! puede ba wag nyo tratuhin na pareho niyo reader ni FP! kayo ang walang edukasyon! ewwww!
kalma teh! deadma sa mga emoterang froggy!palawakin ang VOCABULARY haaa!
daming cyber bully dito sa mag ang cocomment sa fp...nakakaawa ang mga ganyang nilalang kung maka correct ng english grammar sila na ang tama...
Neither. They look different, unlike the Rajo Laurel dress from yesterday.
Para sa akin, Inspiration.
perhaps an inspiration but i prefer the Libiran's work.
buy some CLASS! how come you like his work more than the originaL? sanay ka magsuot ng copycats ano! hahahhaha!
I think there are enough differences in the two dresses that the most we can say is that they have the same style, one was inspired by the other, or both got inspiration from a similar source.
hahhahahah! and im sure di naman sabay ang takbo ng utak nilang dalawa nung dinedesign yan! kaloka! magising nga kayO! kopya yan!
Inspiration! But Libiran's work is much nicer for me. The details were fab!
details are Fab? how come? have you seen it closely compared to Versace? can we not be a person who is nagammarunong here?
inspirati0n maybe.. -nadz
imitation.. Anne is overrated!!
Ako ba naliligaw o itong si Anon 1:59? Yung gown ang tinatanong diba?
oo nga sabi nya imitation tapos c anne overrated.. sus!
Laki ng galit kay Anne. haha! Bat kaya?-A
flat out imitation! kakahiya talaga sa pinas!
eh di lumayas ka. wag ka ng babalik ha.
@4:42 Wow, what a very insightful comment! *clap, clap* Congrats; you want an award for that?
ay wala na ako sa pinas. thank you. living the high life abroad.
Eh mahiya ka! Hahaha.. U can change country but u can never change where your race came from... Kahit mahiya ka hindi ka mahalaga! NEGA KA!
patay! mali na naman ang grammar. good for you that you're out of here kasi di mo na maeengkwentro ang mga taong know it all, wala namang thought process.
dyosko! may maibalik lang na salita kahit malayo! nakakahiya!
definitely an imitation... a cheap one at that.. he took the easy route by lessening the details on the torso part..tsk
pinili nyang i-highlight ang bottom part. mas magulo kung madaming details sa torso tapos madami din details sa bottom part. di naman cheap. OA...
so are you saying OA or very busy yung sa versace? and i am not pertaining to the material, quality or finish when i say cheap, by that what i meant was how one tried to imitate something and fall short or look second rate compared to the original just like those knock off bags at greenhills
hahahahha! hindi ba mas busy yung kay LIBIRAN? dami iinspeksyunin! samantalang versace malinis sa taas sa hips nagakkaroon ng drama e sa kanya buo?
go lang girl! next na may designer na bago lumabas at mangopya at na media hype sasabihin mo din yan! i love the next designer na nagopya! hahahahah
Inspiration... But sana di na lang ginaya yung lower part ng damit, para din kasi syang imitation... But no so much like yung gawa ni Rajo Laurel...
clearly, and not for anything, but the craftsmanship and execution of the atelier versace dress is superb. all the more when compared to that of libiran's dress above. the atelier versace dress was worn by claudia schiffer.
It's awkward when you find out that people have realized you copied someone else's design. As a designer, you can't say, "It's my first time to see that dress." You should've been aware! That's why you look at trends.IMITATION!!!
Could be an inspiration. Same type ng fabric pero magkaiba naman halos karamihan ng detalye. Just want to say though na tigilan pagiging crab ng iba dyan sa works ng mga Filipino artists, kay Libiran, Anne etc.
and it is also not correct to support people who copy just because they are filipino.
Not supporting anyone who copies. But I'm also not impressed w/ Filipino crabs who cant wait to find fault sa kapwa Filipino just because they are filipino.
agree ako kay anon 10:18 ammarami namang mga designer diyan na talagang hindi nangongopya.
Inspired by:yun lang
Inspiration. Not totally knopya.Compared to Rajo's work na tlgang kinopya, eto iniba nmn. I must say na mas creative si Francis Libiran. I love the dress.
Inspiration for me. Libiran could have seen the Versace dress and made his own version. At least the detailing is a bit different compared to Rajo's.
we are talking about Libiran and Versace, and peopel keep inserting Laurels Name? hello! given na yun kay Laurel! he is a not a designer he is a businessman! cares nya sa pangookra? basta siya kumikita! all of a sudden we are comparing Laurel To Libiran? di kaya idol naman niya si Laurel?
i dont see any problem with filipino designers who's getting inspiration from world class designers..at least ito may twist, not totally gaya, unlike yung kay rajo laurel, carbon copy talaga.
I Love Francis Libiran! ML
Sana nag-isip na lang sya ng kanya. Magaling naman syang designer. Bakit kasi kinokopya pa ang mga works ng Versace. Malaking IMITATION. Kung inspiration yan, dapat konti lang pagkapareho. eto parehong pareho eh. Sana gumising na tong mga designers natin na magaling sila at di na kailangan magkopya. Kaya sumikat sina Monique at Oliver Tolentino abroad. Original ang concepts. Di na sisikat sina Francis at Rajo kung puro kopya. Kaya naman di sinuot ni Jessica Sanchez ang mga designs nya kahit ilang beses pa sya pabalik-balik abroad. Jessica opted for Oliver Tolentino designs.
Hindi naman masyado
imitation. hindi naman kailangang exact replica para sabihing kinopya. iyong idea, kinopya niya.
isang malaking CHECK!
exactly, the idea is the same,the fabric, the twisting on the bottom part. and as a designer, would you really not like to release something that is entirely your own?,and that the only way to do that is to check the trends or works of others to ensure that your work is entirely your own?
Could be innovation. Jst saying :D
yung sinuot ni tyra banks sa isang ball ganyan din ang design tulad kay anne.. i guess ganyan talaga ang aesthetics ni francis libiran.. hayaan na lang natin siya.
Actually...... Parang mas nauna ko pa nga nakita sa facebook photos ng isang Filipino designer ang ganyang twirlingdesign. Sikat din sya. So baka yan ang uso talaga. Inspiration itech! At francis is really nice & hardworking! Cutie din.
young fashion designer has better design and innovative concepts, though some oldies does carry their originality but rajo and francis are crossing borders from inspiring to imitating... to think they are charging sky high on their clients is it worthy of their price...
sobrang Imitation na to. Wala na bang ibang ideas? Lahat na lang puro kopya. Wag na silang ma inspire sa mga international designers. paano pa nila maaabot ang international stardom kung kopya or gagawin nilang inspiration yung mga gawa dun? Original concepts, please. Baka maging standout pa yang mga yan.
pero inferloo kahit inspired lang yan mas gusto ko pa rin yung execution nung versace..
FL is just overrated. Like Rajo.
Tumfact! Si Cinco at Ferne talaga ang mga mastermasteran!
it looks like the gowns came from the same collection. IMITATION.m
inspiration.at least dito, yung essence ng design the same pero yung over all silhouette and color iba na.pero bakit kaya ginagawang inspiration ang gawa ng ibang designer? hindi ba puwedeng sa mga bagay bagay around him/her?thoughts lang.
hay..kakahiya..hindi purkit iniba mo ung color eh original kana..ska sna sa susunod na gayahin..sna mas mganda don sa ginaya..ano ba yan..gagaya n lng low quality pa and poor execution.!
Imitation or inspiration, i think versace has a more classier cut and over all look.
Instead of saying this and that, please just support our fellow filipino that still making into the international scene. I also wanna add that designing and dressing someone is not easy as judging someone you barely knew at all, try to design first or if you can, try to do one; before saying any negative thoughts about this design/dress.
Aba..may ngsni bng mdali..kya nga mhal byad sa mga yan eh..ksi ang binabyaran mo eh ung skills..idea...pro kung imitation lng pla..sana kumuha kna lng ng sastre at don k ngpathi!
teh! wag anman sastre! baka gown ang ipatahi mo e mag mukhang coat or sports jacket! call the manangs naman! hahahah
Nakakahiya ang iba sa mga "big time" /sikat designers naten sa pinas Hindi pinapagana ang utak at ini-imitate nalang ang Kung anung makita sa ibang bansa!
Alam niyo ba how the fashion industry works? Pwedeng mag imitate ng mga ginawa. It's a dog eat dog world ika nga. Pwede gumawa pero siyempre nakakahiya pag nahuli. Hindi lang sa pinas gumagawa niyan.
Oo alam ko obvious naman. Not rocket science.
---- maka comment. Hindi si anne! Please read before you comment.. And you're not entitled to your opinion... . (galit lang) hahahaha. Humihirit pa kasi...
it pays to know other designers' works, especially if they're from big houses like Atelier Versace...i once designed a fan-themed dress, tapos nakita ko na medyo pareho pala dun sa isang McQueen piece..Tsaka madaming designs talaga from different houses na pareho like Marchesa at Marc Jacobs some seasons ago :)-frets
hahahahha! ikaw na nag next designer na mangongopya! naku teh! pigilan mo na!
inspiration. RAJO LAUREL-imitation.
na mental block siguro si libiran saglit kaya nangopya tapos iniba ng konti.
hahahahha! kais teh di daw siya nakain ng carbs! kaya ayun di gumagan utak nya! ikaw na maging buffed! na di nagcacarbs! pak!
ay oo nga noh! bonggels ka FP!!! this is IMITATION! gayang gaya! binago lang yung kulay!
OMG this is plain and simple copy cat. akala ko authentic libiran creation
is there a way for me to contribute? Ang daming immitators dito sa Mindanao.
Lagi naman nangagaya yan si francis libiran
Ngek! Oliver tolentino? Eh mula dito hangang sa states mukhang divisoria ang gawa.... May pera lang sya... At di sya sikat sa states noh... Kung di lang sila pinasok ni carandang sa antm... Di naman worth yung francis at oliver sa antm... Dapat michael cinco, furne one, cary santiago, ezra santos, leslie mobo.... Yan deserving....

I'm confused, ang alam ko si Francis Libiran naunang nagdesign ng ganito bago Versace. Tagal na tong kay Anne na picture way back last year or last last year i think. Nafeature pa to abroad with his other designs Tyra even wore one of hid designs na ganitong style???
