“Downtowns Sweetheart”

The New York based Director, Filmmaker, Artist, Designer, Creative Consultant and DJ. Let’s not forget fashion icon. She grew up in Albany, New York and moved to New York City where she studied film and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. She has emerged as “a role model for young tastemakers,” as the The New York Times titled her when they wrote about her in a Style section feature profile.

She launched her line “Violette” in the fall of 2008. Violette is carried in select boutiques. The clothing was inspired by “a mix of opposite worlds: uptown and downtown, hip-hop and rock, feminine and masculine, casual and couture”. The originality in her designs has served as a platform for partnerships with other brands. Vashtie became the first woman to design a Jordan brand sneaker in 2010 under the Violette signature in an empowering campaign oriented toward girls. The tagline was “sometimes the king is a woman.”

Her roll as a host, DJ & director also play a big part in who she is. She has directed videos for jadakiss, Kid Cuti, Solange, Justin Beiber & more.

Check out some of my favorite looks that’s she’s sported! From NYFW to PFW, her style is always on point.

“When you are alienated for being different, you begin to be unafraid of who you want to be. I’m comfortable with being creative. It allowed me say, you guys think I’m weird and I’m going to do what I going to do. I was always interested in meeting new people and being different.”
