Silvia Lago is a Spanish, luxury shoe designer who launched her collection of stylish and wearable stilettos in 2016. Her collection focuses on feminine and delicate designs, taking inspiration from icons like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly who always look sophisticated and feminine in an effortless way.
In 2013, Silvia moved to Alicante in Spain, one of the world’s most prestigious regions of luxury shoemaking, to learn pattern making and the technical aspects of handmade shoe manufacturing. The brand is said to be created after Silvia failed to find stilettos that were both stylish and comfortable.
With the aim of developing a new high heel comfort technology, Silvia teamed up with expert collaborators including biomechanical scientists, podiatrists, last artisans and footwear experts. The brand has combined the knowledge of biomechanical science with footwear expertise to create a technology, the LagosFit®, which forces the foot to walk as anatomically correct as possible while wearing high heels. She also collaborates with third and fourth-generation Spanish luxury cobblers that work for the best international high-end brands.
Silvia Lago has also participated in international events such as the Arab Fashion Week in Dubai, showcasing her shoes in the runway show of renowned Lebanese fashion designer Aiisha Ramadan as well as in the shows of Sylwia Romaniuk, Laura Mancini and Malliny.
Silvia has studied Business Management and Economics and graduated with honors from Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. Moved by her entrepreneurial spirit and eagerness to learn, she studied at top schools such as Columbia University in New York and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and was part of the Next Generation Women Leaders 2012 organized by McKinsey and Co. Before starting this shoe empire, she also worked at the Spanish Mission for the United Nations in New York.
With her belief that fortune always favours the bold, Silvia has taken forward her belief that a woman does not have to be uncomfortable in order to look and feel glamorous. That is why when a woman slips into a pair from the collection, she feels chic, comfortable, empowered, and feminine. Silvia is trying to change the way we think about high heeled shoes.
Passionate and hands-on, Silvia now oversees all aspects of research, design and production bringing a global perspective to the collections she creates for the Lago woman. She believes that elegance lies in simplicity and that sophistication is achieved through subtlety and attention to detail. Featuring classically designed shapes, with an emphasis on supreme comfort, rich leathers, and exceptional Spanish craftsmanship, each pair of Lagos exudes timeless style, femininity and grace.
Silvia Lago is now all set to make a mark in UAE’s Market.
