Lara Ritch received a First Class Honors in a Bachelor of Design at the University of Technology, Sydney—Australia’s foremost fashion design degree. She was born in South Africa, raised in Australia, and has now been living and working in the United States for the past four years. Ms. Ritch has had the unique opportunity to build upon an eclectic design point-of-view. She started her career in the Australian magazine and advertising industries, working at Australian Consolidated Press and OMD Media Agency before moving to Los Angeles to be with her now-husband. She threw herself into the American design culture and was the Los Angeles contributing editor for the Australian publication Yen Magazine. Since moving to San Francisco she has established Ritches Piece by Piece, an interiors personal buying service for private residential clients. With an entrepreneurial design spirit, her next project is never too far away.
