vashtieTV | EPISODE 23: Q-TIP’S “OFFLINE” PARTY – IRVING PLAZA NYC

JULY 2012,

My big brother Q-TIP has his new monthly party “OFFLINE” at Irving Plaza and I had to come through to support, but better yet – to enjoy some good music and even better company! Me and ELLE CLAY rolled through and hung out with our homies who also made appearances; STEVE NASH, CARLENE BALAN, DJ CASSIDY, DJ NEIL ARMSTRONG and more!

Check ELLE CLAY doing her best impression of what walking through a party in a 90′s music video always looked like…

vashtieTV | EPISODE 19: Violette x Beats By Dre Collaboration Party – Performance by Joey Bada$$


MARCH 2012,

“Oh snap”. That’s exactly what ran through my head when my friend and old manager Candice Pilgrim, (who was now managing the Beats By Dre Store) hit me up with the idea that I should do my own limited edition set of Beats By Dre.

Since Violette was about to unveil its New York Collection, it seemed right that we make something that was an homage to New York City. Hence…the Taxi Cab Design. Punctuated by checker print and marigold, these headphones will be sure to get you going!

The event was DJ’ed by YOUNG GURU & JASMINE SOLANO and Drinks came courtesy of HEINEKEN & HENNESSY (TEAM EPIPHANY).

vashtieTV | EPISODE 18: Vashtie on TV – VH1 Big Morning Buzz Live (VIDEO)

MARCH 2012,

When I got the call that VH1′s new morning show, “Big Morning Buzz Live”, was interested in having me present a sneaker segment…I was more than floored, I was NERVOUS!

Although, it would be my second television appearance (the first being my debut on ESPN2 where I talked about my Jordan 2 Collaboration and commented on general sports fashion topics) I was very extremely anxious and overwhelmed.

Somehow, I made it through and they actually asked me back! I couldn’t have done it without my friends and team…

vashtieTV: EPISODE 16 – RAUL SHAVES MY FACE (DECEMEBER 2011)


++++++++++

DECEMBER 2011,

Now that I’ve (surprisingly) been able to grow my eyebrows back to it’s natural unibrow status after years of plucking them into oblivion – I wanted to put “cuts” in my eyebrow again. The last time I did it in 2004, my brows were way too thin for it to have an effect.

This time – I waited a whole year to have my dear friend RAUL do it for me, since he’s been living in the Dominican Republic for the past year working on his avante-gard fashion house LUARZEPOL (LUARZEPOL.COM). I had to wait until he came back to visit the City for us to get together and get it done.

Anyways, it was fun catching up with him and having him sort of explain the origin of “cuts in the eyebrow”…although we may never know the exact meaning, it’s still fun. I always found it super cute on boys and just like anything else I like on boys, I have to do it myself.

vashtieTV | EPISODE 15: VASHTIE IN THE NEW YORK TIMES

MAY 2011,

When writer Alexis Swerdloff reached out to write an article on me for THE NEW YORK TIMES, I was shocked. In fact, I thought it was a cruel joke. Seriously…Me? In THE NEW YORK TIMES featured in my very own article?!

As I realized this was no joke, but a reality – I was so geeked. The days leading up to the publish date I joked that I would go to to Astor Place where famous Jerry’s Newsstand was and tweet my whereabouts and hand out free papers…and I did just that. This was a momentous occasion that I could not sleep on.

THANKS TO EVERYONE who came out for their free paper and to bask in my glorious geek moment that I will never forget!!!
