Here are some international media reviews about "La Lola Moderna" Ricardo Ramos F/W 2012


...After his ethnic-inspired Bahebbak Morocco project, designer Ricardo Ramos de Leon is launching another ultra-creative collection paying homage to eternal femininity. Titled La Lola Moderna, Ricardo’s new F/W 2012-13 collection is a charming mixture of the Berlin twenties period, post-war vaudeville and his rich Colombian heritage...The result is an extravagant, almost surreal collection, made of the finest and chicest materials like wool silk, lurex, latex and recycled fur completed with corsetery by TOmTO Berlin, IC! Berlin sunglasses and elegant suede fringed shoes by Polish shoemaker Koll Ana. The colour palette is feminine and delicious, varying from pink, nude and lilac to deep purple and grey with bright flashes of gold, decorated with nostalgic japonais and geometrical prints, rich pleats and playful bows.. words byAthena Kalogirou/Fashion Installation Greece



...The 1928 built hostorical Babylon cinema in Berlin Mitte, was the venue where Colombian/Spanish fashion designer Ricardo Ramos presented his latest collection on Thursday evening 19th january 2012 to an audience of 400 people during the FW2012 Berlin Fashion Week edition. The Decó style architecture of this jewel of Mitte district was the ideal background for this retro style collection where the characteristic color palette of Ramos was once again invoked and was materialized with silks, wools, furs, lurex , knitwear and latex, this time in a series of 1930’s inspired cocktail dresses with strong oriental and hispanic influence... words by Pascal Iakovou/Luxsure France


For lovers of retro references, the historic Babylon cinema is presenting a vintage Hispanic fashion film series in conjunction with the Instituto Cervantes Berlin. “Die Moderne Lola” (“The Modern Lola”) is curated by Spanish/Colombian fashion designer Ricardo Ramos... Ramos, whose work often draws from traditional textiles and hand techniques, said he’s inspired by the wave of women’s emancipation that started in Spain in the Twenties, and moved through several Spanish-speaking countries from the Thirties onward....“My intention with this film series is to show from different perspectives how women adjusted their social roles in different Hispanic countries at that time, and how women started making use of fashion, manners and a strong femininity to reach their goals,” said Ramos... Along with the film series, Ramos will also show his fall collection “Die Moderne Lola” on Jan. 19. The collection, which lends its name to the film series, blends inspiration from these historic women’s emancipation narratives with touches of Berliner style from the period between the two World Wars...

RICARDO RAMOS: Life was a cabaret at Ricardo Ramos’s playful runway presentation at Berlin’s Babylon Theater....By far the most entertaining fashion screening I’ve ever sat, the vaudeville style show, complete with a flirtatious singing hostess, saw models dancing across the stage on pointe shoes and strutting flapper furs in a collection that recalled that same era. The hairstyles were fantastic - Coco Chanel would have approved - and the garments were playful evocations of Eastern Europe in the 1930s in satin and lace. Ramos successfully transported his audience to pre-war Berlin, an impishly sinister world of song and dance, with drama bubbling just below the surface...
