    Camillo Bona is one of the most acclaimed Italian Haute Couture designers. An original and creative talent who boasts a 30yr career in the fashion market and is recognized abroad as a master couturier.

    The stylist was born in Monte Rotondo. As a child he was inspired by his mother, Signora Lucia who in the 1960’s opened a boutique with an adjoining tailoring shop in their small town. From an early age he attended the maternal laboratory “miniaturizing“ the models that were packaged for the customers of the small center.

    After classical studies he enrolled in the course of History of the Art at the La Sapienza University of Rome, stayed in Paris and London completing his education with significant experiments for his profession. He enrolled in a fashion academy to learn the fundamentals of haute couture tailoring. Even before graduating he began his career with the first experiences, the first fashion shows, the first successes; the “Camillo Bona“ brand was born.

    In love with his”Roma“ he is one of the most appreciated stylists of the moment. He has conquered international stars. Amal Alamuddin, the wife of George Clooney, often wears his creations. In the past he had dressed cinema divas such as Anita Ekberg and Gina Lollobrigida, also working on the sets of several films and making his bond with the eternal city even stronger.

    For the past 2yrs the mayor of Rome Virginia Raggi has worn beautiful creations by Camillo Bona for the premieres of the Teatro del Opera. Today he is preparing the outfits for the wife of our Prime Minister Mario Draghi to be worn at the G20 summit.
    “They tell me that I am an old fashioned man. But my woman will always be at the top. Taste, class, refinement.”

    The fabulous jewelry that accompany his creations are made by Nello.
