Paul Ramos – Illustrado 300 Most Influential Filipinos in the Gulf
Tastemaker: Paul Ramos
Fashion and lifestyle blogger Paul Ramos of “The Style Choreo” has been a very prominent fixture in Dubai’s fashion scene as well as the digital landscape. His commitment to the dapper sartorial style is memorable and hard to miss.
Paul’s feed has been peppered with numerous exciting projects with an enviable roster of brand collaborations. 2019 was equally jampacked with initiatives that cement his name as a top blogger in the region. The year’s highlights include his interview with 50’s Inside, a French TV show in Paris about Zaya Nurai Island, the most Instagrammable place in the UAE. He has also worked with international fashion brands, hotels, restaurants, malls, supermarkets, and barbershops. One of his recent fave gigs is his partnership with Coach on their latest Naruto–inspired collection.
For Filipinos aspiring to make an impact out there, Paul has this to say, “Focus on your passion and be determined to achieve your goals. Most importantly, do what you love and love what you do.”
Paul Ramos’ sartorial style and sensibilities can be summed up in one word: Commitment. In the searing blaze of a Dubai summer afternoon, Paul can be seen walking the cosmopolitan concrete in full dapper suit and tie, his hair slicked to perfection, his shoes spic and shiny. This uncompromising devotion to fashion is at the core of Paul’s success as a blogger and has made him one of the UAE’s most sought-after brand ambassadors. This year, he was chosen to represent Huawei and Bachelor Shoes, and even led and hosted a flatlay photography workshop in the Mall of the Emirates, in collaboration with Harvey Nichols.
Of his not-so secret to success, Paul attests: “Be yourself and put your heart in everything that you do. Be consistent and focus on things that you care and enjoy the most. Do what you love and love what you do.”
