Gomez-Gracia is the intersection of effortless elegance and feminine confidence. Featuring understated daytime chic with sophisticated details that are just right for twilight, a Gomez-Gracia garment makes any outfit an event.

Empowering, feminine, and refined — Gomez-Gracia is about sensual silhouettes and flattering cuts. The combination of luxury, hand-sourced, textured, and often contrasting fabrics, is tempered by tongue-in-cheek details to make Gomez-Gracia the perfect designer for the work-hard, play-hard woman who loves to express herself.

I want women to enjoy wearing my pieces like I savour the visceral experience of creating something beautiful. I want women to feel empowered.

The design process starts 5-6 months in advance of the presentation. The majority of the fabrics are sourced from Europe. Most of which are designed for and exclusive to Gomez-Gracia. Each season, Patricia creates unique embroideries based on her inspiration and explores innovative techniques to apply them. Many of the intricate embellishments can take up to several months to create. The embroidery uses custom sequins that are often hand applied, sometimes taking up to hundreds of hours. The embroidery is done in India, which is renowned for their knowledge of using old world couture techniques. The combination of these techniques, with Patricia’s modern eye ensures that she is able to create singular designs that are distinctly Gomez-Gracia.

Lastly, the garments are created by skillfully blending beautiful fabrics and luxurious details based on the many ideas Patricia sketches every day. After the perfect fit is achieved, the collection comes together with the help of the Notting Hill atelier, who artfully constructs each garment with a meticulous eye for detail.
