Olympian Hidilyn Diaz has chosen homegrown designer Francis Libiran to be the one to make her wedding dress.

The news was revealed by the designer himself on Instagram, sharing a photo with the gold-medalist weightlifter and her fiancé, and wrote, “Love is Golden. The World Champion deserves only the gold standard in fashion design on her special day!”

“#FrancisLibiran is beaming with pride to be chosen by 2020 Tokyo Olympics Gold Medalist #HidilynDiaz (@hidilyndiaz) and fiancé Julius Narajo (@imjulius) as the official designer for their much-awaited wedding.”

“It is absolutely an honour and a pleasure,” said Arsi Baltazar, Libiran’s business partner in another post.

Hidilyn announced her engagement to her coach-trainer and boyfriend Julius Naranjo in October last year, just a few months after she won the Philippines its first gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics.

“I’m grateful to God that He sent Julius into my life, he [makes] my life easy,” Hidilyn gushed in her engagement announcement.
