From an array of soft, comfortable fabrics clad in polka dots, faux fur and elongated jerseys tops and hoodies, Vashtie once again, shows the ladies how to rock in a laid-back but yet stylish demeanor.

Vashtie recently spoke with ELLE.com about how the terms “Model-Slash-DJ” Should Die.

ELLE asks: You’re a DJ. You’re a model. You’re a filmmaker. When people say, “What do you do?” how do you answer?

I just say, “I’m an artist.” I hate when people—women especially—have to narrow it down. I don’t use the “DJ-slash-model” [label] because it’s so small, and it’s never the full story. I usually just say, “I’m an artist!” I make things. That’s pretty vague, but I’m in the business of making things, and traditionally, historically, artists did more than one thing. Warhol was a painter and a filmmaker. And people in New York or any major city, we’re all doing many things. It’s not really that unusual!
