LIFE: DJ’ing for Rakuten at Owen NYC – Hanging with Nike International Friends Alex Sossah & More! (10.21.14)

Well, I’ve been very busy lately. I’ve been doing a lot of DJ’ing and Creative Directing work…once I can unveil the Creative Directing and Designing things, I know you will love it. Or maybe just like it…or maybe not care. Who knows. Anyways, I DJ’ed for RAKUTEN the other night at OWEN NYC and then went to meet my friend ALEX SOSSAH at THE SMILE in town with many many international heads for a massive NIKE WOMEN’S event.vashtie_RAKUTEN_10_20141vashtie_RAKUTEN_10_20142

LIFE: Usher’s Birthday Party at The Box NYC – Trey Songz, Jermaine Dupri, Pecas, Rico Love and More!



Wearing a Reformation T-Shirt Dress, Rag & Bone Leather Jacket, Saint Laurent Baby Duffle and Aldo Boots.


Last week I was invited to celebrate the birth of Usher, one of my all-time favorite artists! It was an intimate gathering of friends under one roof, The Box NYC. The venue was nothing short of interesting performance art. I asked my friends at Moët to gift him something special and they gave me a Moët Leopard Bottle that retails for $5,000 but in the club it sells for $25,000. I almost didn’t want to hand it over to him!

LIFE: DJ’ing at Howard Homecoming & DJ’ing for Puff at #RMC2014 – Travi$ Scott, Jermaine Dupri, Cassie & More (10.2014)


I was super stoked to DJ for Howard’s Homecoming Fashion Show, especially since I went to Art School and the idea of “School Spirit” is just plain foreign to me. It was cool to see people all about their school and enjoying the festivities. I was only in DC for one day and then right after I headed to Miami for Revolt TV’s Revolt Music Conference in Miami where Puff himself asked me to DJ his #ASKPUFF Panel. When Puff calls, you answer and I surely did! That man is a beast, a true icon and influencer if there ever was one. Here’s how it went…

The next day was #ASKPUFF the panel. I learned even more about this powerful and influential man. I was happy to have DJ’ed it, but even more happy to have experienced it. He is incredible.
