My Style Statement inspired by The Ramp Crossings

Performers have to dress up appropriately everytime they are on stage so that they would look attractive to the audience. Sometimes, even if your performance is excellent but you don’t have that stage presence, the audience might still think you as an amateur since it has been considered by majority that looks and fashion are the main elements of being an icon.

I regard myself as a performer since as I already achieved singing in different events held in venues like Makati Shangri-La Hotel, T.G.I. Fridays, Shercon Hotel and Resort, The Tents, and so on. Thus, the grandest and memorable one was during a corporate event held in Smart Araneta Coliseum last December 2010.

Currently, I’m part of the acoustic band, TheUnspoken, as a male vocalist who plays beatbox and percussion musical instruments at the same time. Every time we have a gig, I see to it that I would look presentable on stage. I check out the new clothing styles and trends over the internet monthly or I buy fashion magazines to deal with it. Sometimes, I even visit the boutique itself in shopping malls to see what’s in store for me.

At least two weeks before the performance, my band members and I occasionally discuss what attire should we wear depending on the event. Hence, we adjust the color, the type of shoes, and the style of it to coordinate with the event itself. That’s why it’s important for us to know what will be the theme, the programme flow and the potential audience. In that way we can provide them the performance they would like to see: the voice and the energy level plus the synchronization of our get up, which would give them a total entertainment that could probably give us more potential future clients.

I can’t wait to wear my new semi-Henley round neck shirt with buttons and stripes design (courtesy of The Bachelor’s Pad) in the upcoming gig.

Lately, I visited The Ramp Crossings boutique at TriNoma and I’ve seen wide variety of tops and bottoms to choose from which I could wear in the next coming gigs. From different kind of shirts: Henley, V-Neck, 3/4’s, round neck, long sleeves, polo shirts; down to slack pants, trousers and shorts.

A pair of Mundo trouser that fits my hips as the male vocalist/beatboxer of our band. When I stand up, it could catch the audience’s attention due to its distinctive skin-tight waist and loose legging style.

Aside from that, I also found several styles of leather and rubber shoes wherein the design cannot be found from the other stores.

The casual pair of Mundo shoes that I have has a touch of authentic material in different colored-strings, perfect for my wedding gig.

We can say that the other boutiques have the said items too but what matters now are the style and the rare designs. The uniqueness of each shirts and pants is what set the clotheslines of The Ramp Crossings afar from the rest. This is necessary for me since I’m a performer and its part of my marketing.

Furthermore, you may find yourself surprised because these stuffs (The Ramp Crossings’ products) can also be mixed up with tops’ and bottoms’ of other brands easily, which I frequently do from time to time to express the creativity of my clothing style.

But even if you’re not a performer and you just want something to wear when you go to the mall or to attend a party or gathering, or just having a dinner with a friend or having a sweet date with special someone, I believe you can still find the item in store just right for you. Formal attires are also available from trench coats to blazers to jackets to leather shoes or classy sandals for the ladies or even the hippy shoes for kids and teenagers.

Attires and dresses are like symbols. And as a performer, it’s one way of paying respect to the audience as viewers since they have exerted their efforts to be in the venue to watch the show so in return I need to put forth that full blast stage presence as a professional singer. Now that’s what I call the true essence of fashion! (AAP)
