Larisa Katz shes re-introducing and injecting a much needed dose of arts and crafts into the very seams of fashion, making fashion once again a little more, or indeed much more authentic whilst also creating daring depth.
Once a painter and now turned designer Larisa Katz has not abandoned her strong artistic roots and methods of observing, making discoveries and creating outcomes from pure curiosity.With such a imaginative and spectacular outlook of the world and the worlds many marvelous wonders: such as the diversity of eastern and western cultures. Of which are evidently a strong influence and design reference point, fusing the two together perfectly.
Sometimes when designers decide to stitch together, so to speak contrasting cultures it is often too much of a blur. With the final result being an awkward and unbalanced blunder, relying on the too obvious elements of both eastern and western.
However Larisa fuses both eastern and western effortlessly,and avoids highlighting the same old same old of both the two cultures carefully pealing away the layers unafraid to explore a lot deeper.
Combining cultures is only really the basic foundations of Larisa's designs, putting to great use her portraiture skills to human form, producing visceral sculptured haute couture style dresses, constantly experimenting with an array of exciting fabrics and complex shapes. To construct not just beautiful couture style pieces, but to create classic, timeless, romantic and ethereal designs to treasure forever.
Once again it all comes down to those intricate art and crafts techniques that ripple through those origami-esque ruffles and sharp, strong yet soft shapes. Structures and textures that are light as air, delicate and dreamy.
To sum up Lardisa Katz creations in two short words: Meaningful style
