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 while growing up in Laguna Beach, California. All the while, Marisa knew that one day she would like to start a company of her own. 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, and was something that Marisa could see herself taking from the beach to city, day to night, all in one effortless piece. She decided to build a line taking inspiration from this dress, creating a silhouette that allowed the materials to shine. After months of trial and error to get everything just right, Risa Collection officially launched in 2019.
