Member Spotlight: Inga Popkova (Los Angeles Chapter)
July 22, 2016
Inga Popkova made her way to California in 2004 from her hometown and birthplace in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Following high school, she continued her education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, graduating with a degree in international business.
Throughout her early career, her passion for travel and experiencing new cultures led to time spent living in London, Alicante and New York City. Her experiences along with time spent growing up in her mother's factory helped her decide that pursuing a career in the fashion industry was the next chapter in her life.
Collaborating with her idol, mother Larisa, she finally pursued her dream. Larisa was started by the mother-daughter team, Larisa and Inga Popkova. A brand that existed for 25 years in her family debuted in the United States in April 2016.
When asked why it is important for her to be part of Lipstick Sister she said, “My absolutely amazing, loving, inspiring sisters…women empowerment for life! The support, love, great laughs, deep conversation, mini-trips and vacations created this bond that distance and time can't affect, it will always be there.”
Inga’s favorite inspirational quote is by Oscar Wilde ~ "You can never be overdressed or overeducated."
Larisa the Brandwww.belarisa.com Larisa is in every girl, in every woman. As women, we have to wear so many hats throughout the day…mother, friend, worker, lover. We can be girls-next-door, socialites, and powerhouses. But let's face it, despite all of our hard work and all of our contributions, we don't wake up feeling like a royal goddess every day. Larisa is a luxury girls' and women's brand dedicated to inspire every female into feeling powerful and beautiful starting from a young age.
