MAJOR is very pleased to announce the launch of the Women’s exclusive Converse (Product) Red Chuck Taylor by Vena Cava, on Saturday, December 5th.
Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock were fated to work together. When just out of high school, a mutual friend introduced them in LA. they soon started their own clothing line, Vena Cava. “It started mainly as a way to have a party and show our friends the clothes we’d made. It developed into a mini collection that was shown during fashion week.” And not long after that it started making fashion headlines and getting worn by the young and stylish—and famous.
For Converse 1HUND(RED) Artists, the Vena Cava girls did a version of their Havisu print, which captures their aesthetic, a combination of deco and Native American. “We want to wear it and we want our friends to wear it of course,” Buhai says. “If we designed a shoe that in even a small way helps with the AIDS situation in Africa, then we’re happy to do so.”
