Made in LA. Inspired by stories.
VENIA : Ancient Latin for the English word Grace. Noun; elegance or beauty of form, manner, motion, or action.
Los Angeles based design duo Eni and Nigma created VENIA, a multi-platform fashion label dedicated to pursuing grace through the science of dress. Drawing inspiration from architecture and engineering, the duo designs in the form of seasonal stories imprinted with deeply personal impressions about society and postmodern phenomena.
Modern technological luxury, effortless elegance, and intentional utility are three fundamental principles the brand is committed to portraying. Ethically made in the United States, all pieces are engineered and cut specifically to suit our wearer’s individual physical intricacies.
Our mission is to tell stories of the present, crafting each collection as the zeitgeist.
HOUSE OF RYURA
Discovering this passion at an early age, art has always fueled Damion’s need to create. Believing in the words his grandfather said to him, “The simplest things are the most complex to express.” This later in life led him to obtaining his degree in Fashion Design.
“Through my eyes I see them as puzzle pieces, and those elements from which I can use my editorial eye to bridge fashion with cosplay while combining elements of art, music and a richly deep color and fabrication.”
Moving to San Diego seven years ago and meeting inspiring cosplayers, the House of Ryura was built bringing the idea that all artists can work together, giving birth to the RyuraVerse where he is creating persona, not just fashion.
With a penchant for 80’s and early 90’s super girly motifs, Miss Alphabet will walk you right down memory lane. Her designs hit you straight in the face with elements of Barbie, new wave, 80’s and 90’s inspired elements (hello, ballerina bears?), and of course, j-fashion. The founder, Liz, began with more punk and rockabilly styles but quickly abandoned those upon discovering fairy kei brands like Spank! and Nile Perch. Originally you could bid on one of her creations on eBay if timing was on your side, but now there’s plenty for everyone on her website and Etsy shop!
