Long before being a stylist was the occupation du jour, Jenni Epperson was already running around, sourcing and styling for commercial shoots and fashion editorials. Like any true visionary impassioned with her craft, she has evolved and explored roles: lifestyle blogger, magazine editor, tv host, author and now – designer of her eponymous brand. Jenni teams up her flair for stylish living with Manila’s loved home and fashion hub, The Ramp Crossings and created the country’s first lifestyle pop up store: Jenni Epperson for The Ramp Crossings
Calling her initial collection “Rise and Shine,” Jenni Epperson for The Ramp Crossings is for the definitive multi-tasking modern woman whose tasks and roles vary throughout the day. And so the line’s key pieces will have one greeting the day in coral-inspired print chiffon tunic with gold coral embroidery to serving afternoon tea with the ladies from a gold lattice bar cart to seizing the night in knee-high sculptured heeless gladiators. Keeping everything transitional and multi-purpose was a key concern for Jenni. And so the collection’s highlights include reversible throw pillows, bar carts that can double as side tables or tea trolleys, pretty trays that serve as table decorative piece and uber chic clothes that can take you from the city to seashore and even the club!
The home and fashion line is also peppered with her signature print – Zebra- and played up with gold highlights. She enthuses, “The collection is not only fun and flattering. It’s very cohesive.” Jenni claims that her vision was to create a brand with pieces that not only complement each other but one that also keeps up with your lifestyle. “The jersey caftans are so versatile, just put on strappy flats and you can run around the day in them and just replace them with the gladiators and metallic clutch for a night out.” As for the home collection, Jenni’s main offering is the formerly elusive luxe bar cart and supplemented by Coral and Zebra themed home accessories such as reversible throw pillows, glazed hand-painted trays and coasters, gold hammered metal candelabra and napkin rings. Xandra Ramos-Padilla, General Manager of Crossings says, “The team was excited to start on this collaboration because Jenni’s not only an established figure in our industry but she’s also become a pioneer and tastemaker for those who want their style to be evident beyond their closets and into their homes.”
Jenni Epperson for The Ramp Crossings is available at Crossings Shangri-La Plaza, The Ramp Crossings Glorietta 4 and TriNoma.
