“A modern day alchemist responsible for miraculously transforming women”
Lucia Silver is an exciting, British Creative Designer who believes in working directly with her clients. You won’t find her original designs anywhere except The State of Grace, as she does not supply or license anyone or any other establishment.
“I’m excited by feminine firepower. I am creatively and emotionally invested in discovering and celebrating the individuality of each woman who invites me to design for her. It is an honour and a privilege to be trusted to create what a woman will wear for her red carpet moment, especially her transcendent wedding day.
I love the relationship and understanding that grows between a designer and a woman. As we work together for her appearance on centre stage surrounded by people who love her, we enter into a magical journey of sparkling and transformative discoveries that reveal the power and Goddess within her. It is a Life-affirming moment to see her sparkling inside and out.”
Lucia’s career in fashion and styling began in Notting Hill where she opened the famous L Boutique which was a favourite with celebrities, media and the fashion pack.
“I started designing for individual clients because I was tired of seeing women feeling bullied by the dictums of fashion – too round for this, too old for that. It seemed that there was nowhere to go to explore your own style and have something designed and made for you that perfectly expresses who you are. Woman are intricate, colourful and divinely contradictory. I love that my work is defined by this constant individuality…”
Lucia’s renowned bespoke clothes designs, accessories and styling have graced glossy shoots and red carpet occasions for an array of trail blazers including Gwen Stefani, Jerry Hall, Sade, Kate Moss, Dame Helen Mirren, Lucy Yeomans, Keira Knightley, Lisa Snowdon, Claudia Schiffer, and more. Paloma Faith chose The State of Grace to design her first sell-out UK tour.
Lucia only takes a few commissions every month. This ensures that her clients receive her undivided attention and she is present at every appointment from conception and fitting through to styling and send off!
