We had a such a fun time filming this video… it ran way over the time but everyone stayed in such good spirits and got the job done. My friend Fawwaz was in charge of capturing all the behind the action. And Robert [Odudu Photography] was the videographer for the main video. Massive thanks to both of them and also my models as well: Yang, Issaina, and Angelica.

I’ve also decided to make this a trend for every collection that I put out. I have personally never seen any fashion video like the one that I will be released… so I think it would be so cool to create something that would synonymous with israella|KOBLA|.

Drama 1: No Photographer!!

So originally, I planned to use Robert Odudu to take the pictures. But being the very talented photographer that he is, he was crazy busy! I really wanted to get the photo shoot done ASAP and the date he gave me was sooo far away!

I tried looking all over for a decently priced photographer. I explained to them that I was a student and just starting out in the business (hoping they would do it pro bono.. haha).. but really, who was I kidding? Everybody needs to make a living!

So by the time I came back to Robert, he was no longer available for the original date he had said. I literally wanted to cry, it was a week before the apparent photo shoot and I didn’t have one of the key people– A PHOTOGRAPHER!!

After speaking to Robert and explaining all the stress I had been through, we managed to work something out and get a date that both he and the models could make!

I’m so glad he was the photographer, because he has such a good eye for capturing shots. Plus we had so much fun on set!!

Be sure to check out his Facebook page [Odudu Photography]

Part 2 coming up…

Much love,

It was so freaking cold that day!! But like boss ladies my models didn’t let it it show in the pictures. They seriously rocked it out. I LOVE them so much!!

Here is a little gallery of random pictures from the day.

Even though everything came out perfect in the end! So many things went wrong in the build up to the big day, and even on the big day. I’m going to have a little “Drama Series” talking about all of those things.

Look out for the final edited pictures in the next post!

Much love,

Emefa :* :*
