Lucia B. Marti, was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She always enjoyed window shopping as a little girl - especially in jewelry stores. Her mother, former hand model and lover of jewelry herself, would try on the most beautiful pieces. After attending the Savannah College of Art and Design with a major in Jewelry Design and a minor in Accessory Design, she can now create those pieces she was once mesmerized by.
As early as her Freshman year, she participated in the SCAD Fashion Show in collaboration with senior fashion design student Carmela Osorio Lugo. Their work was featured in Teen Vogue, Fashionista, Elle, and WWD. Later, they were invited to present at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Panama. Since then, Lucia has been fond of collaborating with other designers even up until her senior year.
For her Senior thesis, she created the “Genome Collection” which was inspired by the advances in science and technology in the field of genetics. This collection was created using the latest softwares in Computer Aid Design and 3D printing. Incorporating Tahitian pearls, which have DNA of their own.
With this same collection, she was chosen as a finalist at the 2019 International Mittel Moda Fashion Awards, in Milan, Italy. Representing not only SCAD, but her country of Puerto Rico. Winning the prestigious Accessory Award. Following a feature in Vogue Italy.
