2008: Kola started her own clothing line, VIOLETTE.
With an official debut in fall 2008, the clothing was described as "a mix of opposite worlds: uptown and downtown, hip-hop and rock, feminine and masculine, casual and couture".
2006: She was asked to re-vamp the company of Island Def Jam as director of creative services. A" Reid, president of Def Jam, said she would be "the one to keep the building cool, someone in tune with downtown cool and pop mainstream." That year Kola also started an monthly '90s party with her friend Oscar Sanchez called "1992".
Playing only music from the late '80s and early '90s, the event brought out a mix of tastemakers and celebrities including Dave Chappelle, Jay-Z, Ne-Yo, Jermaine Dupri, Patrick Ewing, Redman, DJ Premier, The Clipse, Maxwell, Chanel Iman, Zoe Kravitz, Grand Puba, Lord Finesse, and Ki D Cu Di.
via DANTE MARSHALLS blog: “Last week I had a shoot with Director, Fashion Designer, Party Promoter Va$htie Kola.
The approach to this shoot was a little different from the norm and inspired by a spread that Iâ€™ve seen two favorite photographers do in the past.
The energy she gives off when present is pretty awesome.
As you know if you follow my work I work with Sean quite often as I am the photographer that shot his last mixtape, his most recent mixtape which is due to be released mid February as well as his album artwork for the official album that will drop later this year.
At the same time she was also writing music video treatments for established directors such as Anthony Mandler, Lenny Bass and Dr. She wrote the treatment for Common's video "Testify" which starred Taraji P. During the same time, Kola styled and modeled for the clothing line Billionaire Boys Club.To this day, Vashtie is constantly hitting up Pharrell, checking in on him, emailing him, and asking him for help with her career. We were also able to learn that Vashtie has indeed moved on and is very happy with Scott Williams, the fella she’s pictured next to in the above photo.He feels bad because he was her true love and now he is having a family with someone else so he will to this day put her on for most of her career moves. But she’ll constantly do anything to be connected with him – working with his friends, his artists, showing up at his store, collabing with BBC. Our sources tell us they’re perfect for each other, that they’ve been together for years and they like to keep things private — which is why he has a private Instagram account — and the photo above is one of a rare few she’s posted on her account.I'm here to meet guys from 26 to 40 years old for dating, friendship, serious relationship and networking. but so is Pharrell and we hear great things about his fiancée Helen. when we received a tip accusing Kola of homewrecking we were pretty shocked.
