London-based designer Patricia Gomez-Gracia brings her chic eveningwear to the DC area.
With a host of holiday events on the horizon, the recent opening of London-based designer Patricia Gomez-Gracia’s showroom seems remarkably apropos. “DC is the epicenter for global events with the political and social elite. It plays host to major charitable and political functions, creating a demand for evening and cocktail wear that is unique, elegant, and opulent,” says Gomez-Gracia.
This winter the designer, known for embellished eveningwear, offers beautifully detailed gowns in textured fabrics at her first stateside boutique in Potomac. “Our designs range from flowy, feminine gowns to sleek, modern LBDs to more stylized, beaded evening tops,” she says.
Gomez-Garcia’s new showroom opens in Potomac.
Sumptuous fabrics such as silk and satin are sourced from Paris and London, while the label produces all of its garments in the United Kingdom. This winter a silk chiffon black gown with a Swarovski crystal hand-embroidered bodice (far right) and an A-line evening dress in a 1960s geometric print are among the most striking designs. “I found the fabric in Paris and instantly fell in love,” Gomez-Gracia explains. “The fabric is loud on its own, so the silhouette didn’t have to be. The woman who buys this dress loves fashion and is atrendsetter, but she’s also tasteful. The classic silhouette contrasted with a modern fabric is perfect for her.”
