Why a Creative Team in Notting Hill is causing such a Stir
With a team of leading experts - until now the preserve of red carpet celebrities - The State of Grace is a head-to-toe bespoke design, styling and beauty service that transforms women into the best they can be. Now, at last, this extraordinary cutting-edge expertise is available to brides so they can express their personal style and capture their individual femininity.
Beyond the Cookie-cutter
“The days of the cookie-cutter bride are numbered, woman want to be treated as individuals” says The State of Grace founder and creative design director, Lucia Silver, “We don’t follow trends, we create them – inspired by each new bride.
“Our creativity is unrestricted by the usual pressures to design more than a year before presentation; or to mass produce our work abroad. We simply concentrate everything on making our bride looks the best she possibly can on her wedding day!”
The State of Grace’s Notting Hill showroom is a treasure trove of design possibilities including dresses, jewellery, (vintage and modern) shrugs, capes, coats, veils, head-pieces, shoes, bags and more.
Behind Front-page Celebrities
Among the stylish and colourfully diverse women who have enjoyed The State of Grace’s magic in some form are: Jerry Hall, Sade, Kate Moss, Helen Mirren, Lucy Yeomans, Keira Knightley and Claudia Schiffer. A recent client appeared on the front page of The Daily Telegraph as the “best dressed at this year’s Ascot”; Paloma Faith chose State of Grace to design her recent sell-out UK tour look; and Prince Harry’s latest amour, Florence Brudnell Bruce, wore State of Grace outfits for the Cannes Film Festival and her summer red carpet events.
