The simple opulence of this slinky V-FRANZ dance dress is the result of thousands of hand-cut Cashmere BT “petals”, each centered with a tiny rhinestone, that have been steamed to deliver life-like curl and dimension.
It’s fitting that a cheeky fashion designer like Vfranz Bernil would attach a silent V to the front of his name. That same dare-to-be-different attitude pervades his V- FRANZ collection of sporty, casual-chic, often skin- baring women’s and menswear, with its signature play of structured fabrics against drape-y jerseys and chiffons. This high-energy, multi-talented Filipino- Canadian launched his line in 2012 during his sophomore year at LaSalle College in Montréal and has since seen his clothing featured in numerous publications (Dress To Kill, Clin D’oeil, and The Gazette). Did we mention he also designs footwear for ALDO?
