In the Press: Alumnus Vashtie Kola in The New York Times

May 19, 2011

Alumnus Vashtie Kola (BFA 2004 Film and Video) was recently profiled in the Style section of The New York Times. A music video director, fashion designer and popular downtown party scene hostess, Kola is described as “a kind of renaissance woman who moves easily among fashion, film and music,” who “has emerged as a role model for young tastemakers.”

Kola, who was the first woman to design a Nike Air Jordan shoe, has launched a successful line of clothing, Violette, sold in boutiques in New York, Paris and Tokyo and has directed over 20 music videos, for artists ranging from Kid Cudi to Justin Bieber.
