RAMIRO'S HOUSE!

RAMIRO

DM: Where did you go shopping for your Summer Jam look?
R: A little bit of Nordstrom and a little bit of Bodega. I got a bunch of different options and went to my friends Santi and Ashlee, aka America's Next Top Model judges, and I texted them pictures and said "What do you think?" My fashion game isn't as bad as I thought. Ashlee texted me "I'm so proud of you", and I'm like, "Ok I'm not 12 and you're not my mom."
DM: Did your style change when you started working out more?
R: Of course! I try to wear stuff that's more fitting to show off my physique.
DM: I'm surprised you have clothes on right now since it's so hot.
R: Ha! Don't ask, I will take my shirt off in a heartbeat. If you said that before I had the BBQ I would have been more willing to take my shirt off.
DM: What shades do you have on?
R:Honestly, I don't go over ten dollars for my sunglasses because I either lose them or break them. Who cares. And if you judge me for my glasses then I'll find something to pick on you for.

SANTI

DM: What's new with your fashion line, Modus Collection? Tell me about the new collection.
S: The new collection is simplified and updated. I call it the Passion & Dreams collection. It solidifies everything I've ever wanted out of the line.
DM: Where do you find your inspiration for new collections?
S: I kind of go at it like creating an album, song by song. I make something that I would wear and hope it represents the masses.
DM: Any celebs wearing it lately?
S: Zach from the Real World and the Challenges.
DM: Do you have any other projects going on?
S: Goodrepculture.com is my new Cross-Fit inspired line.

ASHLEE

DM: Where did you get your dress?
A: 344 at the Natick Mall. I saw it hanging up and I was like, "Dude! That's the one!"
DM: You have to wake up pretty early in the morning for work. Do you go in casual or do you really get ready?
A: We are firm believers that you dress how you feel and how you feel is how you look to everyday. Santi and I come in correct. Ramiro jokes that it's a fashion contest. I could leave there and go out if I wanted to. I do my makeup and hair every morning. So at 3:30 in the morning, Santi, Ramiro and I get up, we shower, and we get ready.
DM: You shower together?
A: Ha! No.
DM: How would you describe your style?
A: I'm a little punk rock. I love combat boots and yoga pants. The sock bun is my staple.
