Sophie Buhai is one half of the design duo Vena Cava. Vena Cava was started ten years ago and is based in LA and NYC. Sophie attended Parsons School of Design where she met her partner Lisa Mayock. The pair design clothing for themselves and for their friends, creating what they call "future heirlooms"- elegant and original clothes that cool girls want to wear. These are pieces that can be passed down through families or friends, that are singular and special but always wearable for a Vena Cava woman of any age, present or future.
