The 18th birthday is an important milestone for women. Here in the Philippines, it marks the coming-of-age of girls; the age where they are considered matured, hence the celebration is special, grand even.
But Dian Seranilla defined debut in a fancy way, as she celebrated her 18th birthday on March 28 at the Mall of Asia Arena, no less. The “MOA Arena Debutante” invited about a thousand guests in the venue that can sit 15,000 people.
In her interview with candymag.com, Seranilla said MOA Arena met the venue specifications she wanted for her birthday. She said she wanted a space with a high ceiling, as she made an aerial grand entrance dressed like an angel.
Her opening outfit was made by Albert Andrada and her ball gown was created by Ezra Santos.
Apart from the usual program, her party had a fashion show and mini concert. Her dad, Steve is a concert producer; he’s the one responsible for bringing Kanye West to the country in 2016.
According to rough estimates, her family have spent around P5 million for her birthday.
