Debuts are an optional tradition. Filipinos embrace tradition, which is why many families in the Philippines choose to have one for their daughters on their daughters’ 18th birthdays. Debuts range from the simple impromptu ones to the elaborated, planned and thematic ones. Although a debut is often looked upon as the presentation of a young woman to society when she turns 18 years old, IMAGIK likes to think of it as a special way of celebrating a special day!
