West Indian Inspired Fashion!

19 Oct

I’m always looking out for Caribbean designers and I found another one, Vashtie Kola!

Kola is a director, hip-hop socialite and designer of her own clothing company, Violette. She is a New York based designer who is of Trinidadian descent and she has just come out with a new Caribbean Inspired t-shirt line. If you want to read more about it, check out the article on  fashion bomb daily.

I’m sorry to say I’m not in love with this line. I think it’s cute, but wasn’t wowed by it. Sorry, Vash.  However, I did like the ting-a-ling shirt, it’s too cute. Plus, who doesn’t like Ting? No really, I want to know,who!?!

What I really don’t like is the price. If these were US$15, I would snag one, but at US$40, nope, can’t do it. It’s a little to rich for my blood. Sorry, VashVash. She also has an accesory line with mirrors, lighters etc. etc. So I think I’ll pick me up a keychain at US$8, now that’s what I call a deal!

I will be keeping my eye on Kola, I think we’re going to see some great things out of her in the future. Hopefully, she will continue making Caribbean inspired fashions. REPRESENT!
