Announcement! Garo’s workshop has decided that this week shall have twice as much popping and locking as previous weeks!

After downloading yesterday’s mix tape, all you ladies, gents and gender benders can grab the fifth mix right here — DJ Valissa Yoe Mix. Coming to you once a week (maybe twice) as tribute to couture fashion designer Garo Sparo, all thanks to our lovely friends over at Garo’s workshop.

Watch as Garo, part-time psychiatrist and full-time dream weaver, helps his clients battle their inhibitions and unleash their true selves in our all new original series UNLEASHED BY GARO, Fridays at 9p!

Check out this week’s mix tape below, brought to you by Valissa Yoe.

Valissa Yoe prides herself in being a true renaissance woman. Raised in Westchester, the Big
Apple was only a train ride away. Valissa moved to the city to attend FIT for Fashion Design.
Right out of school she began working as a designer for KAI MILLA (Stevie Wonder’s wife).

Valissa Yoe became a New York personality in great demand as an innovative powerhouse
in the creative image market as a fashion stylist and makeup artist for clients such as MTV,
Comedy Central, Vera Wang, Google, Sony Music, Donald Trump, Miss USA, Ethan Hawke,
Tyson Beckford, and Oprah to name a few. Her work has her traveling from New York to
London, Paris and Rome. Valissa Yoe is known for her stunning red coif with the appeal of
Jessica Rabbit and the expression of Patricia Field. Valissa takes inspiration from the late and
great McQueen, Chanel, Leigh Bowery and Warhol.

After styling a range of musicians like Jay Sean, Drop the Lime, Ryan Leslie, Kid Cudi and
Amanda Blank it was a natural progression for Valissa Yoe to begin djing in 2010. Her first
dj gigs was opening for famed DJ A-trak and hip hop superstar, Drake. In one year time she
has graced her skills at The Box, Le Bain at The Standard Hotel, The Thompson Hotel, East
Village Radio, Brooklyn Bowl, Club 57, Topshop and Canal Room to name a few.
Valissa Yoe has her finger on the pulse of what’s next in fashion makeup and music. She
continues to set trends and sway crowds. Valissa is confidence and charisma.
