“By its nature, the metropolis provides what otherwise could be given only by traveling; namely, the strange.” - Jane Jacobs, The Death and Life of Great American Cities.
VENIA Ancient Latin for the English word Grace. Noun; elegance or beauty of form, manner, motion, or action.
In 2014, an LA based duo created VENIA; a multi-platform fashion label that carries a mission of Grace both in effortless design with an intentional purpose. Inspired by innovative and modern design with a nod to the past, VENIA created the Modern-Tech Luxury archetype for those with a confident urban edge, and a twist of innate nonchalance who live in the present.
VENIA consistently pursues innovations that aim to challenge and enhance the wearers experience by balancing functionality and design. By choosing transparency over illusion, VENIA is founded with roots in culture and ethics. The fluidity and shape that constantly juxtaposes the other, play on the contrasts of the personalities of the design duo, forming an androgynous air that infuses into each story, waiting to bring life to the next chapter.
Our goal is to tell stories about the present with nods to the past and eyes to the future; crafting each collection as the zeitgeist.
