Larissa's infatuation with fashion began as a designer of performance costumes for herself and fellow cast members. Shy and reserved when not onstage, wearable art became an important means of self-expression in her life. Larissa was discovered by a talent scout at the Mall of America and later scouted at the IMTA convention and signed with multiple agencies.

a devoted follower of fashion.
"sleek designs that press all the fashionistas' buttons"
Design for good
Larissa opened her first business when she was in the seventh grade. Within a year, she had established a strong base of loyal clients. Subsequent projects allowed Larissa to continue to explore her natural inventiveness and creativity. Rarely without a sketchbook or notepad on hand, Larissa documented the world around her in pursuit of unique ideas to positively impact people's lives.
Larissa's artistic influences and inspirations include brutalist design and futurism. In 2019, Larissa joined up with F+J Productions as Chief Creative Officer for the Road to Vintage Fashion Show. The event is dedicated to raising awareness and eradicating human trafficking.
Concept evolution of her Bauhaus/Renaissance fusion fashion line Londonberry Couture, and the celestial-inspired Lunescape Collection, has continued since their 2006 inception, later branching into Visage by Larissa eyewear. In 2014, Larissa opened Rad Retreaux, a vintage-luxury boutique. She began designing jewelry and accessories at the age of nine, and later sold custom and ready-to-wear pieces to clients.
