Larissa has always been that girl who loves numbers and get excited over the dynamics of economic and banking business. She pursued her career all the way to the top. She had always known what she wanted and worked extremely hard to accomplish her goals. Until that one passion, which has always been in the back of her mind since she finished high school, came back and kept calling her name.

Batik has always influenced Larissa in many ways of her life. It all began from her admiration of her late grandmother, who always organized and kept her batik collections neatly from time to time. Larissa had her curiosity answered by the feeling of fulfillment and joy once the fabric covers her posture perfectly. There are almost no other materials out there, which are able to fit her small posture.

Thus, her love of Indonesian fabric initiated her first fashion label in August 2011. Caressing her own name, Larissa, combined with her beloved husband’s last name, Duliar; LarissaDuliar was created from the hard working attitude she had always shown in her previous career, her love and enthusiasm towards Indonesian’s original craftswomen and men, as well as her passion for fashion that grows even stronger.

Not having a fashion background never stops or discourages Larissa to keep learning, seek for expert’s help and take every opportunity to advance. Hence every LarissaDuliar dress has more than just a style, more than merely a fabric drawn and stitched up together; it is a passionately crafted collection that is brought up by the imperfections to you all our lovely Ladies.

 

Awalnya Larissa adalah seorang wanita yang suka dengan angka dan dinamisnya dunia ekonomi dan perbankan. Dia mengejar karirnya hingga posisi tertinggi yang tidak kebanyakan wanita di usianya mampu meraihnya. Dia selalu tahu apa yang dia mau dan bekerja keras  akan hal itu, sampai suatu saat passion yang selalu menggelitik saat lepas SMA, kembali menghampirinya.

Batik selalu mempengaruhi Larissa dalam setiap jalan di dalam hidupnya. Dimulai dari kekagumannya pada sang nenek yang selalu sangat apik menyimpan koleksi batiknya dari masa ke masa, Larissa menjadi sedikit penasaran. Rasa penasarannya pun menguap lega ketika kain batik tersebut melekat sempurna disaat tidak ada jenis bahan lain bisa menutupi garis tubuhnya yang sedikit lebih kurus dari wanita kebanyakan. Jika bisa dibilang, jatuh cinta pada pemakaian pertama.

Maka kecintaannya akan kain Indonesia dimulai dengan merintis label fashion pertamanya pada Agustus 2011. Menggunakan namanya sendiri Larissa dipadukan dengan nama belakang suami tercinta Duliar, koleksi LarissaDuliar tercipta dari kerja keras yg selalu dia miliki dari karirnya terdahulu, penghargaan karya atas pengrajin asli Indonesia, serta passion yang kian menyala.

Tidak mempunyai latar belakang mengenai dunia busana tidak menghalangi keinginan Larissa untuk selalu mau belajar, bertanya pada ahli serta mengambil semua kesempatan yang ada. Sehingga setiap bentuk koleksi LarissaDuliar mempunyai lebih dari sekedar gaya, lebih dari sekedar bahan yang dibentuk bersama; setiap koleksi LarissaDuliar menunjukkan hasrat dan dedikasi tinggi bagi para pecintanya.
