In fashion it’s always refreshing to see someone demonstrating her unique style. After all, [Yves Saint Laurent] said it best: fashion fades but style is eternal. As the first female to design an Air Jordan brand shoe, Vashtie Kola combines tomboy street wear with a slight couture glam.

This Trinidadian director who wrote the treatment for Common’s “Testify” video, served as the Director of Creative Services for Island Def Jam, and directed Solange’s “T.O.N.Y.” video, also has her own clothing brand VIOLETTE.

Recently teaming up with brand Jordan to pay homage to ladies who love rocking sneakers, Vashtie admitted that it’s a perfect fit because Jordans are her favorite sneakers; and the self proclaimed ‘Downtown Sweetheart’ boasts an impressive collection to prove it.

But before designing a Jordan, Vashtie has been on many style radars as she demonstrates her unique tomboy style.

Merging comfort and couture, check out some of Vashtie’s stylish, street-glam looks.
