WHO IS M A R I A . ?

M A R I A . IS THE WILD FLOWER INSIDE EVERY LITTLE GIRL OR WOMAN. SHE IS STRONG, WILD, INDEPENDENT AND ELEGANT. SHE IS NOT WHAT THE WORLD EXPECTS HER TO BE. SHE IS FREE.

 

WHAT IS A SCARF?

A SILK SCARF IS THE ELEGANT BEST FRIEND OF YOUR BIKER BOOTS AND LEATHER JACKET, IT'S THE UNIQUE TOP NOBODY ELSE OWNS, IT IS A CHEEKY LITTLE COLOR PLAY IN YOUR HAIR OR A CHOKER AROUND YOUR NECK.

NOTHING IS AS GRACEFUL AS A FEATHER CASHMERE SCARF WAVING IN THE REFRESHING OCEAN BREEZE ON A TROPICAL BEACH AND NOTHING IS AS SOFT AS ITS HUG ON A LONG DISTANCE FLIGHT.

A SCARF IS EVERYTHING BUT JUST A PIECE OF FABRIC OR OLD-FASHIONED. IT IS TIMELESS, IT IS ELEGANT, IT IS PLAYFUL, VERSATILE AND GRACEFUL.

THE HEART AND SOUL.

MY NAME IS LARISSA. 
WELL IT IS ACTUALLY MARIA LARISSA BUT EVERYONE CALLS ME LARISSA. MARIA WAS ALWAYS A PART OF ME, THAT IS WHY I CALLED MY LABEL MARIA - IT'S SOMEHOW ME, BUT NOT REALLY OR NOT ONLY.

I LOVE THE OCEAN, THE SAND UNDERNEATH MY FEET AND BETWEEN MY TOES, THE OCEAN BREEZE IN MY HAIR. I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY AND I LOVE TO CAPTURE THE WORLD AND NATURE AROUND US IN ITS BEAUTIFUL DETAILS. I LIKE EXPLORING THE DUNES, THE ROCKS ON THE SOUTH END OF A BEACH, THE TROPICAL FLOWERS AND PLANTS, I LOVE THE DETAILS AND PATTERNS NATURE CREATES. 

I LOVE SILK, I LOVE THE TOUCH OF IT, THE WAY IT IS PLAYING WITH LIGHT AND ITS SOFT TOUCH. CASHMERE IS VERY SIMILAR BUT WITH A VERY WARM AND LOVING FEEL TO IT. FOR ME A SCARF IS NOT A PIECE OF FABRIC, IT IS AN INVESTMENT IN YOUR WARDROBE AND STYLE. IT IS SO VERY VERSATILE, THERE ARE ENDLESS WAYS TO WEAR IT, SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS TO TIE IT AROUND YOUR NECK, WRIST, WAIST OR BODY. 
A SCARF IS UNIQUE, ALWAYS.

I TOUGHT ABOUT WAYS TO COMBINE MY PASSIONS FOR PHOTOGRAPHY AND FASHION AND I DIDN'T WANT MY PHOTOGRAPHES TO BE STATIC AND MOTIONLESS IN A FRAME ON THE WALL. 
THAT'S WHY I STARTED MARIA. ALL DESIGNS ARE PHOTOGRAPHES I TOOK ON A BEAUTIFUL DAY DOWN BY THE BEACH OR ON A BUSH WALK, EVERY PHOTO IS A MEMORY THAT IS SUPPOSED TO INSPIRE YOUR NEXT DAYDREAM.

MARIA. IS MY HEART AND SOUL.
