This week, the fashion industry has been measuring success through the quality of their lunchbreaks. First, Chloë Sevigny offered up this anecdote, and now, Vena Cava designer Sophie Buhai shares her experience: "When we had our studio in Gowanus we had to walk 20 minutes everyday to work, and at work we only had one bowl and one spoon, and we would take turns eating lunch with the bowl and spoon. It was really fun because we had nothing—we had no one helping us and we did everything ourselves. It was such a raw environment to work in." [Racked LA]
