WE HAVE witnessed Kathryn Bernardo’s journey from being a Goin’ Bulilit kid to being one of the most popular young actresses today- known for her characters in Mara Clara, Princess and I and Got To Believe. She started in the business at a young age of seven and now as she celebrates her 18th birthday, Kathryn only hopes for the best things life can offer.
Kathryn never planned of having a party but things had changed when her family and close friends gave her a hand to mount a grand birthday celebration. Dubbed as the Teen Queen, Kathryn will have a debut celebration as she turns 18 years old this March.
While her birthday is on March 26, the Kapamilya actress will hold her grand debut on March 29, Saturday, at The Blue Leaf Filipinas. The venue’s design is a modern-Filipino architecture with beautiful gardens that gives a refreshing ambience.
Kathryn is very much involved in the preparation of this occasion to make sure that this will be a special moment to her and to the people who will be part of it. She has been very hands-on with the theme, invitations, giveaways, and with the other considerations to add her personal touch. She has chosen modern vintage with as twist as her party’s theme and motifs are black, white and pink. Guests who mostly friends in and out of showbiz, relatives and family, are expected to attend in their formal black and white attire.
Her debut gowns will be designed by prominent fashion designers Francis Libiran and Vania Ramoff.
“Kathryn’s gown by Francis Libiran is a combination of classic, modern and timeless while the second gown from Vania Ramoff is daring and easy but youthful- both gowns fit her image and status as a Teen Queen,” says Kathryn’s stylists Em Millan and Rain Dagala.
Highlights of her debut are the 18 Roses and 18 Candles where most of her friends in and out of showbiz will take part.
Her 18 roses are Teodoro Bernardo, Kevin Carlo Bernardo, Lino Cayetano, Neil Coleta, Robi Domingo, Dominique Roque, Khalil Ramos, John Manalo, Enrique Gil, Jhong Hilario, Steven Fermo, Joshua Dionisio, John Valle, Mike Bawa, Marco Alcantara, Dominic Ochoa, Ian Veneracion and her escort, Daniel Padilla.
