A Glossy Flair: Magazine Style Debut Invitations

Our chief graphic designer Rodel Santos just recently finished designing a magazine-style debut invitation that suddenly reminded us of the glamorous debut invitations of Jorgina Almoro and Zian Serranilla.

These two beautiful ladies, both coming from prominent well-to-do families, inspired the very first personalized magazine-style debut invitations Printsonalities ever created. Jorgina’s debut in February 2011 and Zian’s in August the same year both featured their stunning pre-debut photos that captured them in different genres of fashion.

“My main motivation for the two magazine-style debut invitations is that all of the glossy pages must naturally be about the debutantes. I designed [the invitations] not merely for them to be an invitation but also to be a representation of the celebrants,” shared Rodel.

Jorgina Almoro’s Mod Charm

Her sweet smile and swanky character were in perfect use in this chic magazine-type debut invitation. Her theme for her debut was “Mod” which according to her means “being fashionable, stylish, modish, being current or prevalent, being contemporary or modern, being innovative or new, and being chic, classy or posh”.

Indeed, all throughout the beautiful pages of this glossy invitation was Jorgina in her full bloom as a lady.

Zian Serranilla’s 1950’s Glamour

Zian’s theme for her debut was a bit more serious and more mature. Adopting a 1950s fashion era, her fabulous wardrobe exhibition matched the vintage-inspired fonts and glossy paper stock that elegantly displayed her glamorous transition into adulthood.

The Debut is a traditional Filipino celebration of one’s entrance into adulthood. For girls, it’s celebrated on their 18th birthday, while for boys, it’s on their 21st. This tradition is somewhat similar to the Quinceañera of the Latin Americas in terms of grandness and significance. This is one of the very few times in your life that the love and appreciation of your friends and family are very much felt.

And, well, no other kind of invitation can fit this meaning than a full-blown magazine about you.

More than the high quality customized wedding invitations and stationeries we are respected for, the debut invitations of Zian and Jorgina both show that Printsonalities can execute any concept, any design that the debutantes may be dreaming about for their celebration.

As what Rodel commented, “imagine being in the cover and centerfold of your own magazine. It’s like realizing your superstar dreams in the pages of a debut invitation.”

Ms. Doris Magsaysay Ho’s Family-Hosted Dinner

It was a single loose card with black fonts, no designs, no extras, but its elegance and meekness portray the utmost Filipino hospitality – staunch, sincere and heartfelt.

The invitation we crafted for the Filipino hospitality dinner of hosted by Ms. Doris Magsaysay Ho and family last May 4, 2012, in honor of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) Board of Governors.

Simultaneous with the 45th Asian Development Bank Annual Board Meeting of Governors that took place last May 2 to 5, 2012 here in Manila, nine prominent Filipino families were handpicked by the Department of Finance to host nine family-hosted dinners to showcase the culture and hospitality of the Filipino people. One of our most loyal clients, Ms. Doris Magsaysay Ho, who is a well-respected entrepreneur, socialite and philanthropist, was among those personalities selected.

Other families chosen include the family of Mr. Washington SyCip, Mr. and Mrs. Lance Gokongwei, Mr. and Mrs. Jaime Augusto Zobel, Ambassador and Mrs. Jesus Tambunting, Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Philip Romualdez, Mr. and Mrs. Miguel O. Cojuangco, Mr. and Mrs. George Ty and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Sy Jr.

Each host family opened their homes to about eight to nine heads of foreign delegation, including their spouses. Served with native Filipino dishes Ms. Doris Magsaysay Ho’s own home at Forbes Park, Makati City, the guests were able to experience the warmth of hospitality, a fundamental character embedded in every Filipino household.

Some of Ms. Doris Magsaysay Ho’s guests include delegates from Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Denmark, Georgia, Papua New Guinea, Republic of Nauru and Turkmenistan.
