A day in Mr Laah’s studio rounded up my series of 30th birthday snapshots. And it was totally unplanned.
SPICE TV was covering behind the scenes the making of Jason Porsche’s Resort 2016 lookbook when I spotted this rough textured piece of clothing laying in a corner. At first I thought it was a dress, my curiosity led me to ask Ademola Odusami (Mr Laah) for an answer that concluded with us scheduling a shoot the week after, with a rough textured rug.
That morning, my phone had rang ten times before 7am. Makeup artist was at my house and I didn’t want to get out of bed neither did I feel like standing in front of a camera. I had stayed up all night doing absolutely nothing on my computer, surfing the net and watching random videos (my perfect Friday night). But I was looking forward to shooting with Mr Laah. I met Ademola few years back on Tomi Odunsi’s promo shoot set with Obi Somto. Not only did I remember we had a pending studio session, I’ve seen his work evolved and his recent studio space and office launch.
I’m definitely going back for a whole day studio session with Mr Laah. It was a fun shoot.
