DOPE Summer Fashion: Vashtie


Downtown’s Sweetheart

This New York socialite, director, creative consultant, and DJ wears many hats, but one that can’t be overlooked is her fashion icon with her undeniable laid back, mix of casual and chic style. She’s known for setting trends and working with major fashion lines such as Stussy and Billionaire Boys Club and launching her own line called VIOLETTE. The line is inspired by “a mix of opposite worlds: uptown and downtown, hip‐hop and rock, feminine and masculine, casual and couture.” A perfect explanation of why Vashtie is on our list.

New Yorker Vashtie Kola is the modern day epitome of a renaissance woman. A director (she’s worked with Justin Bieber, Kendrick Lamar and Solange), a designer (through her label Violette, she’s done collabs with Puma and rapper Cam’ron), a dj, a model and all around extremely cool person, Vashtie’s always been on our #lifegoals list.
