Spring is far from in the air, but the fashions for 2010 are already rolling down the runways. For Vena Cava, their interpretation of spring 2010 included polished and tailored garments with distinct tribal elements thrown in for good measure.

Aside from a few literal prints--such as the tribal-mask-printed chiffon evening dress--the designers of Vena Cava did not take the indigenous theme to the extreme, throwing in creative cut-outs, intricate safety-pin creations and boldly tailored shoulders.

Condfident flashes of color, such as a the pumpkin orange sundress, added a pop to Vena Cava’s chic but muted pallate.
