Risa collection

Sue Sartor

The Risa Collection is the creation of Marisa Scott Renfro, a designer based in Los Angeles. Her love of fashion began at a young age, when she would constantly sketch and create clothing and jewelry from her home in Laguna Beach, California. She trained as a stylist in New York before working for brands such as Prada, Michael Kors and Ashley Pittman.

The inspiration for Risa came while pursuing one of her other passions: travel. While visiting India, Marisa drew inspiration from the culture and created a design that was stunning but simple, distinctive but uncomplicated - something effortlessly worn from the beach to city, day to night. She decided to build a line taking inspiration from this dress, creating a silhouette that allowed the materials to shine.
