Style Origin 4: The Ramp Crossings Part 1

Super loving the 4th leg of the Style Origin series with The Ramp Crossings. The theme for this special showcase is about the biggest trend this summer-Color.  From bold brights, kaleidoscopic hues and playful prints the fashion forward presentation is trendsetting Manila with so much gloss.  Style is current in The Ramp's landscape of modern silhouettes, cuts and remarkable display of design as seen in their almost 100 piece collection.  The variety of 15 brands together fused a cohesive narrative of on the radar appeal every fashion follower shouldn't miss.  Must-have brands lined up in living color were Mundo, Possibility, The Ramp, Cole Vintage, Salsa, Schizo, Cosmopolitan, Analogue Soul, Pill, Seven Confessions, Amber, Willow, United Pop, Apartment and Salsa Trend. The striking explosion of primary hues on the runway is sharp and refreshingly blowing our minds on how to wear color now.  



Languid is bright on track.
Color punch.
Spot on the bright ideas.
Men in brights.
All boxed up.

The feel for hair and makeup was distinctly chic and worth trying.  The mane attraction was in full bangs giving that unique look punched with standout bright lips, a hint of blush and defined eyes.  The pretty and bold is the modern cool this season that will definitely make you pop out with every flash.

The Glorietta Activity Center was packed and seen on the front row are the country's top fashion editors, celebrities, personalties and social butterflies. Opening and closing the show was one of the most promising young actresses in cinema and television, The Ramp endroser--Andi Eigenmann.  Setting the mood of understated sophistication was the Bossanova music played during the entire show performed by no less than Sitti.  With so much behind-the-scenes pictures I have decided to make two entries for this one. Watch out for the second entry which is all about the shoes and accessories used for the show.  In the meantime feast your eyes and keep your wardrobe ideas on the bright side.

The Ramp Crossings is located at the 2F Glorietta 3, Ayala Center, Makati city.
