Direct, design, consult, write, promote and amass a nasty collection of Jordans–can one woman do it all and live to tell the tale? The answer is an emphatic yes, and we are not surprised that it’s M.I.S.S’s very own Woman Making History Va$htie Kola! The P.Y.T, known lovingly to her fans and peers as “Downtown’s Sweetheart”, has conquered nearly every field of the entertainment and media industries including designing her own successful line of streetwear, Violette. Va$htie got her start behind the camera after studying filmmaking at New York’s SVA, and has been working on videos for stars such as Jadakiss, Solange, and Kid Cudi ever since (In fact, did you know she was the chick behind the camera for the much loved C.R.S’s “Us Placers”? Still one of the sickest video concept we’ve seen in a while!). Besides directing, the woman also knows how to throw an awesome NYC shindig– her infamous weekly Open Party with Q- Tip is quickly becoming a M.I.S.S fav!
As if all of this wasn’t enough, Va$htie decided to keep herself busy by blogging about her day-to-day in the industry and on the set. And thus was born Va$htie.com! Featuring insights in the life and mind of a media gal extraordinare, as well as some hilarious musings on 21 Jump Street and a plethora of throwback videos that hit the spot, the blog is now complete with a bright new re-design showcasing Vashtie’s work, contributions, and the fun-loving spirit we’ve all come to expect from Downtown’s Sweetheart! So make sure to take your little blog-browsing butts over to the new and improved Va$htie.com and get to commenting!
