The Influencer: Vashtie Kola

A Visionary Director, Party Producer, Style Maven, Lady of Leisure, Jordan 3 Villain, TomBoy Extraordinaire. This is Vashtie Kola, or as she is often called “Downtown’s Sweetheart.” With a friendly demeanor and uncanny ability in bridging the gap between underground cool and industry mainstream.

The Influencer was born and raised in Albany, NY as the youngest of three children of Trinidadian parents, Vashtie was reborn in New York City in 1999. Her sights were set on the film world as she attended The School Of Visual Arts in Manhattan to study directing/cinematography. Fast foward to now she is one of best directors ever. She has worked with so many names like Pharrell, Justin Bieber, Solange, Q-Tip, Kid Cudi, Big Krit, Joey Badass, Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco. There are many more to the list. Vashtie created her own line, VIOLETTE. The clothing is inspired by a mix of opposite worlds: uptown and downtown, hip-hop and rock, feminine and masculine, casual and couture. I've always admired her style and work ethic. Vashtie is a strong woman who has much more to accomplish and she is only in her prime. A true Influencer.
