Vena Cava has faced some major financial struggles recently, but it sounds like their problems have been solved thanks to a new partnership with Hong Kong's Li & Fung Limited. Fashionista explains why the relationship works for both parties: "For Li & Fung, who also has agreements with Rachel Zoe, Sofia Vergara, Daisy Fuentes, Ellen Tracy and Keds Apparel, it gives them a label to attract more of that golden demographic, Gen-Y (ie 18-35-year-olds). For Mayock and Buhai, it gives them the resources to bring a lot of ideas to fruition, which they couldn’t do in the past due to financial limitations." [Fashionista]
