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|.

My Birthday Outfit: End Result!

So, my birthday is nearly over! :( But I had a great time celebrating it and and even better time rocking my outfit. I must be honest though I came very close to just leaving the project! It is very hard when you have curves to make things fit properly (without all your bits and pieces falling out). But I managed to pull it together in the end and I just made a slight change to the original design.

Pictures below! (the lighting was really dim everywhere we went so the pictures are not as clear as I would have liked). Massive thank you to my friend Aira for getting the material as a gift for my birthday! :*

And look what my friend Saphia got for me.. personalized sketchbooks.. whoop whoop!! :D. The quote inside also meant a lot!!

If you don’t already know me, you are probably starting to see that there is always something in the pipelines. This weekend I’m going to be shooting my virtual fashion show!! Remember how my friend Sade gave me the idea after I decided not to do the fashion show.. I know it’s going to be siiick because Robert the photographer from my first shoot is going to be shooting it for me :D

Until next week!

Much love,

Lost in the |WILDERNESS| behind the scenes <—– CLICK!!!

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 :* :*
