A fashion show for a debut
Pretty Nikka Amable is a typical teenager, who dreams of being a successful fashion designer someday. Like the rest of her friends, she loves to dance and sing and swoon over her “crushes”. For her debut recently, her family and friends wanted to make the occasion extra special, something she would treasure and remember the rest of her life.
Nikka's Tito Cris Amable, a popular event stylist, came up with the concept “Fashion Runway Show”, just like the finale of the famous Project Runway. The venue was the grand ballroom of Bacolod's Sugarland Hotel. The runway was 50 feet long and six more chandeliers were added, giving the place an ultra classy look. The color motif was black and white, from the entourage to guests who came in their most fashionable black and white attire. In stark contrast to the black and white theme, red flowers adorned the entire room, filling tall glasses, crystals with mirror runners and candles as centerpieces. A spectacular stage backdrop displayed four mannequins wearing the exquisite gowns of Manila designer Eric delos Santos.
When the debutante made her appearance, looking “drop-dead-gorgeous” in her dazzling evening gown, the guests showered her with rapturous applause.
Nikka's gown was designed by celebrity designer Michael Leyva, a favorite of Kris Aquino, Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach, and other celebrities.
Everyone enjoyed the fabulous fashion show which had 18 members of the debutante's entourage as models for the 18 footsteps, 18 candles and 18 roses.
Nikka and her sister Nikki wowed the audience with their rendition of their favorite song, “Lean On”.
The party was a big hit as guests had a ball dining on the delicious dishes and dancing to their hearts' content after the show.
Happy birthday, Nikka, and welcome to the grown-up world!*
