There can be no more fabulous way to ascend to the heights of cinematic glory than via climbing the red stairs at the Festival de Cannes. This film première rite of passage is based on traditions that have taken root over 70 years with legendary cinema stars and celebrities walking the walk of fame in some of the most extraordinary looks to date. Yes, the French film festivities are synonymous with high-class glamour and lavish luxury, and the vibe of the French Riviera is unbeatable during the celebrations.

I’m grateful and honored to had been invited by Nespresso for its 10th Anniversary celebrations, so I decided to take the Cannes Film Festival on with chic style, sleek elegance, a lavish touch of glamour and resourceful preparation! Because let’s be real, we’re all here for the glamorous looks.

To me, attending such a prestigious event is not just about being glamorous and catching the attention. It is more about revealing and celebrating your own personal style, while staying glamorous and within the dress code. With that being said, I channeled my modern goddess inspiration to design the gown that I would grace on the red carpet. An asymmetrical, monochromatic, bright fuchsia, one-shoulder evening dress with a flowing cape ticked all the right boxes for the screening I had been invited to attend. Glamorous, yet divine and impressive, it was the right kind of dress for the occasion. It made me feel and look the best version of myself without compromising elegance, the dress code of the Festival, the importance of the occasion, nor the vibe.

I walked on the red carpet with the flashlights sparkling in every direction and I enjoyed every moment to the fullest. I felt one with the surroundings, but most importantly, I felt that I made an appearance worthy of who I am and what I stand for. And that my dear friends is the power of self-aware fashion!       

When the sun went down, Cannes unveiled its festive side and welcomed the most prominent parties of the Festival. For such glamorous nights, a bit of bling is mandatory. But, that is another story…

With love from Cannes,

Infatuated with the mesmerizing beauty of Venice, designer Ramona Filip takes inspiration from the city’s mystery, history and culture to divinely portray the essence of glamour in her SS22 capsule collection.

Renaissance frescoes and gothic monuments, buzzing piazzas and romantic bridges, singing gondoliers and harlequins, cast a spell in this spectacular collection that embodies glamour, mystery and drama in the most intoxicating way.

An ode to architectural magnificence, the collection’s silhouettes swing between artistic grandeur and suppleness. The amalgam of sumptuous and shiny textures create a dramatic scene of flamboyant stardom where motion and emotion take centre stage.

Flowing metallic fabrics give life to divine drapery and embrace the body to create classic, almost monumental, figures. Shiny and twisted pleats decorate shoulders and hemlines while capturing the light of a sunset and reflections of waterways in a rigorous and playful manner.

Feathers accentuate dramatic dresses, where volume and vulnerability coexist in the most harmonious way creating powerful dresses that’s impossible to go unnoticed. Crystal embellishments cover transparent tulles in the form of intricate and abstract patterns, or rich fringes and beaded chains that sparkle in every graceful movement while leaving the eye in awe.

Probably Ramon Filip’s most glamorous and mysterious collection so far, celebrates the rebirth of the brand’s core codes in a new manifestation. It’s feminine, as ever. It’s glamorous, as ever. Yet, this time around, a glorious feeling breathes upon the collection more than ever.

The Ramon Filip woman of this collection ignites the inner flame of passion for life, drama and mystery in the most unapologetic way. She shines in her metallic goddess dress under the Venetian sunset. She captures the eyes of every passenger in the Bridge of Sighs like a black swan, as she sheds her mystery over the waterways.

She takes off her mask and reveals her ancient goddess attributes to become a modern day deity. Among harlequins, jugglers, acrobats, dancers and Casanovas, she is the queen of the show and no one can steal her crown of light.

For those special times when you want to look totally divine, a bespoke couture dress is the answer.

The thing about couture is not just the astonishing amount of time put into the making of a dress. It’s about selecting the absolute best materials, the most sumptuous fabrics, beads and crystals that create an abundance of ornate embellishment and intricate embroidery. It’s about customisation and putting everything together into a bespoke creation. It’s about freedom of creativity and craftsmanship, the ability to create a masterpiece from scratch, entirely by hand. But above all, it’s about a dress that tells its story with special personal messages and is totally unique, just like the woman that chooses to wear it.

This is the story of Zendaya. A couture piece similar to no other, this mini dress is nothing short of magnificence. It is made entirely by hand, from scratch, featuring 3D hand embellished golden crystals in a tulle background. The Pharaoh-inspired collar is accentuated by padded shoulders for a modern effect, whereas its low waist emphasises the intricate fish-scale pattern in contrasting anthracite gathered-tulle details. 

Apart from being an outstanding red-carpet-worthy style that will turn all spotlights on you, this dress is a true masterpiece and the epitome of glamour. Everything about it exudes splendour. The endless hours of handwork put into this dress and the impeccable craftsmanship in every little detail, have solely one purpose; to make the woman who wears it bring out her most majestic self. And this is the supremacy of couture! It holds such power, that it can utterly transform you into the goddess that you truly are!

Dressing for a special occasion, be it an engagement, wedding, christening, or any formal event really, can be daunting. While special events are always exciting, deciding what to wear to them can be stressful, especially when dress codes are involved. After all, choosing an outfit that is appropriate while still being fabulous can be a challenge. Of course, the classics are always on-trend, so if you’re after a white dress for a pre-wedding event or an LWD (Little White Dress) for, well, anything, we’ve got you covered.

We all know that white stands for purity, innocence, freshness, simplicity. But, think again… White is also such a powerful colour. It symbolizes a new beginning and a fresh new start. No wonder it’s become the prominent colour for wedding and engagement ceremonies. While a classic choice for these nuptial occasions, a white dress doesn’t have to be boring, or predictable.

Our Nadira Blanc dress ticks all the right boxes. Cut in a body-con silhouette, it has the right under-the-knee length that makes it utterly elegant and formal-occasion-appropriate. The pleated detailing round the bust, accentuated by a massive bow, the thin straps that reveal the shoulders, along with the front slit that enhance movement, counterpart its classic appeal with a contemporary flair. Its sateen shine reflects light just as a pearl does, subtly but prominently. Perfect for any formal occasion, (let alone weddings and engagements – only require a daring spirit to choose it), this white cocktail dress promises a night to remember with all eyes on you.

Nothing beats a bold, luxurious look! Don’t you agree ladies? For all those special summer occasions we so much look forward to, the answer is always ONE STUNNING COCKTAIL DRESS! After all, no one likes to go unnoticed! And what better way to turn heads but with a dress that highlights all the qualities of femininity.


Shape and fit are always the number one prerequisites for me when designing a dress, or for you when choosing one, (and that’s a definite realization from a women designer who designs for women for over 20 years now!). With the Sadia style, it’s all in the perfect fit and the flared skirt! Its elegant cut contours the curves in all the right places, while the trumpet hemline adds a touch of playfulness to it making you want to dance along its spirited outline. The heart-shape band suits perfectly to its strapless bust line, yet it’s the ruffled detail on the bodice that steals the show!


Impeccable tailoring along with surprising details, a feminine silhouette and a fresh pastel blush hue in shiny silk fabric, make Sadia the go-to style for the contemporary woman, who feels equal parts romantic, confident in her own skin and ultra feminine. Wear it to your next formal occasion with strappy sandals and sleek accessories for the bold luxurious look that feels undeniably forward-thinking. Oh, and enjoy the compliments!

Love,
Ramona

The most cheerful shade of blues takes centre stage in this season’s mood boards and becomes the colour that instantly upgrades our summer wardrobe, for vacation and beyond. Did I just say vacation? Yes!

When it comes to your vacation wardrobe, what are you looking for my dear friends?

To me, there are certain components that need to tick the right boxes, starting with comfort. And when I say comfort I mean comfortable silhouettes and cool fabrics. That’s always the first aim when I start designing a new collection, especially a summer one. Silhouettes need to be flowing, easy to wear, and feminine all together. Fabrics should be lightweight, breathable and breezy so that they hug the body with a feeling of coolness and simplify movement. Silk chiffons, cotton poplins and lightweight laces are my go to choices.

And then comes the ‘’wow factor’’. There should be something special in every piece. Either the colour shade, or a stunning detail that makes every garment unique and worth turning heads. Sometimes huge bows and intricate trims do the trick. Other times ruffles work wonders, while there are time when the simplest of silhouettes are turned marvelous just by a bright unexpected hue.

The brightness as aqua really inspired me for this vacation capsule wardrobe. Fresh and dreamy, it gives the feeling of exotic beaches, crystal clear waters, and the power of waves. Indeed, this cheerful shade of blue evokes so much energy and calmness all in one. And it was the perfect choice for this summer’s super stylish and trendy vacation pieces. It works perfectly well paired with other bright colours, like yellow, for unapologetic colour-blocking. It brightens up neutrals and with white it really is a match made in heaven!

I hope you love it my dear friends as much as I do! And when you wear it, I hope you blend in the perfect aqua setting!

Love,

Ramona

Would love to read your comments!

There’s something exhilarating about colours! Heart-warming and full of energy, they transfer me to blazing sunsets deep diving into endless and restless oceans. They transcend me above horizon lines, they give me supremacy to push my limits, get out of my comfort zone, conquer new dreams. In other words, bright tones give me life.

When it comes to wearing them, colours offer absolute freedom of expression. While I was designing my new collection, it seemed like a natural evolution to add a big dose of brightness. I felt the urge to supplement that source of energy to my creations. When everything around us seems mundane and static, colour acts as a driving force for change.

So here is one of my favourite dresses. Nadira is an explosion of feelings, energy and outright elegance, all in one. Its feminine silhouette with the front slit for the right amount of sexiness and the playful bow around the bust make it simply irresistible.

Vibrant fuchsia and blazing orange work miracles together and they have a very special place in my heart for the energy they transmit. Fuchsia symbolizes uniqueness, confidence, maturity and certainty. It nurtures, soothes and inspires, showing a fun-loving trait. Paired with orange, which symbolizes joy, enthusiasm, creativity, success, encouragement, determination, happiness and fascination, it creates the perfect combo to uplift the spirit and make you feel invincible.

So, dare to wear colours my dear friends. You’ll be surprised by the transformation they empower in you. After all, life is too short to wear boring clothes!

Love,

Ramona

One thing this pandemic has taught me, (and to many of you all the same, I’m sure), is to never take anything for granted again and never put off anything for later. After a year of travel deprivation, the moment I realized that there were safe ways and safe destinations to travel to, I called my besties, organized everything in the blink of an eye, and off we were on a flight to the idyllic El Gouna.

I’m not going to talk about all the ways travelling has changed during the Covid era in this post. However, I’m definitely going to talk about the joy of it all, starting from the excitement of packing a vacation capsule wardrobe, to spending precious time with friends close to heart, no matter the restrictions.

And oh, I planned it so well my dear friends! Mentally travelling to the exotic shores, before the actual trip, I imagined the wind in my hair, sand in my toes, sun and salt on my skin, and all the perfect vacation pieces came to life. Flowing dresses in silk pastel colours, trimmed with delicate lace, wrapped us in the breezy days on board. Imagine the beauty of it, three happy girls in dreamy dresses laughing and feeling blessed, all dressed in matching sheer silk frocks.

Comfy elegant onesies with impressive frills and voluminous sleeves and broderie anglaise easy cotton sun dresses accompanied us from brunch to cocktails, while the joy of being together after such a long time, only made every moment count to the max.

There’s a perfect dress for every woman and every moment, every destination and every dream. With that in mind, my vacation capsule collection is just about that. With perfect summer essentials for every woman, every joyful carefree moment, and every destination.

Dress for your next dream vacation and enjoy every moment!

Love,

Ramona

The Ramon Filip Spring/Summer ‘21 collection captures the supreme body movements of a prima ballerina with whimsical dresses that emerge from a fantasy fairy-tale world in masses of tulle, one pirouette at a time.

Intervening between adagio and allegro, the prima ballerina jumps out of the fairy-tale with a flawless “ronds de jambe” right into the real world. She floats in the air in a slender and agile movement covered in a cloud of tulle. Graceful and free, she seizes the moment. The grand jeté!

Inspired by the precision and mastery of ballet choreography, Ramon Filip reinvents the connection between fashion and dance with skilfully sculpted feminine silhouettes that embody the continuous flow of every movement through fabric fluidity and captivating embellishments. The collection boasts a delicate, yet powerful sense of femininity. From highly embellished tulle and organza to elusive lace and structured satin, fabrics intertwine in perfect harmony, tangling in drapes and fringes full of movement.

Fitted bodices are balanced by light and airy multiple layers of tulle while feathers hover over dresses made of hand-embroidered crystals and beads. Shoulders are finely defined and revealed through spaghetti straps and sweetheart necklines adorning light dresses and floor-sweeping gowns. Tulle remains the star of the show covering silhouettes with a sensual softness. Bringing to life classic ballet gowns, the collection features a subtle and romantic colour palette that goes from powdery hues of white, lavender and aqua, to dusty pink and moonlight greige.

Suitable for the modern bride, romanticism and lightness are at the core of this season’s dresses. Through timeless silhouettes, modernity and glamour evolve on soft flows of tulle, organza and multiple ruffles. Embellishments delicately shower the gowns and convey a message of hope, tranquillity and serenity.

With the newly launched Eleftheria Square as a setting, the historically significant architectural intervention that unifies the ancient Venetian walls with the modern city beyond, the new Ramon Filip collection embodies the anticipation of a new beginning rooted deeply in history, tradition and dance as an art form that evokes emotion and unifies the past, the present and the promising future.
