'WHEN ART MEETS FASHION'
KUMESU KUBA CAMPAIGN
Kumesu Spring-Summer 2019 takes its inspiration in the Kuba Art from the Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
From exquisite geometric patterns on raffia cloth, cowries and beads used in Royal attire, the Kuba people have been described as people who cannot bear to leave a surface without ornament. Each pattern is given a name by a tribe -to honour the creator of the pattern or describe an object. The decorated caps indicate social standing and reflect wearer's achievements.
A genius scientist takes revenge and payback to an entirely new level. Whilst being pursued for his invention by a dangerous government controlling syndicate of illustrious bad guys, as well as some small time local villains.
This is the story of the mesmerisingly manipulative mastermind Jason 'Jay' Mansa. Society progresses as a festering evil grips the city.
NATIONAL AWARD SHORTLISTED FINALIST
A tale of 3 perspectives...a tale of 3 journeys... 'A Tale of Free Fittings'.
A short film by Philip Iyegbe and commissioned by the charity Suited & Booted 'A Tale of Free Fittings' is the story of 3 of the charity's typical clients.
The concept was to tell the every day struggles of 3 very different people and highlight the help and respect they receive from the charity, as well as empowering them to take advantage of their opportunities. It went on to be a shortlisted finalist in the National Charity Film Awards later that year.

'AUTHENTIQUES' EXPERIENCE | LIFESTYLE CAMPAIGN
Authentiques Paris - Luxury and bespoke custom made clothes Hangers and Wardrobe accessories AuthentiquesParis.com
It was a pleasure to be asked to write, direct and produce the a short film and photoshoot for this highly sophisticated and established B2B brand as they expand into the commercial arena.
We only had between 9 to 5pm on the day as the shoot location was also a celebrity's home, so the gauntlet was truly set. 8 hours to shoot 13 scenes with a cast of professional models, let's do this right. So we invited the photographer so I could creative direct the photo shoot too! I'm sure they won't mind if we run a little over...
Turns out that good planning and a great team of cast and crew is still and will always be a winning combination. No matter what the shoot day threw at us. Big thanks to all the models and massive thanks to an awesome crew (well most of them anyway).
