Different cultures have different ways of celebrating the transition of a girl to womanhood. In the Philippines it happens when a girl turns 18. Traditionally celebrated in the presence of not just the debutante's family but also in the presenxe of her extended to community. 

This one that I'm making is special since I've done Aly's prom dress too.  

It's such a nice feeling to be the person she goes to to celebrate milestones of her life.
