"The Most Grown-Up Party We've Ever Had"
The Greeks had nine muses. Vena Cava has 12. For their 1940's-flavored Spring 2012 collection, designers Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock opted out of a fashion show in favor of enlisting a dozen inspirational friends to show off their clothes at a dinner party at MPD last night. "The most grown-up party we've ever had," Buhai said, right before everybody threw back tequila shots. The stylist Kate Young wore white. Tennessee Thomas, who did double duty as the evening's DJ, wore black. And Sarah Sophie Flicker wore pot leaves. "Am I so lame that I didn't know these were marijuana plants?" she laughed, pointing to the green botanical print of her Vena Cava bustier dress.
