Launched in 2019 by British born Ghanaian designer Emefa Kuadey, the luxury made-to-order clothing and accessories brand redefines minimalism through structure and bold femininity. israella KOBLA was created for the confident woman with a distinct sense of style. She stands out, effortlessly.
Inspiration for the Toronto based brand comes from a juxtaposition of the designer’s interests; fashion and a past life as a civil engineer. israella KOBLA pieces highlight an appreciation for architecture and timeless design. Ultimately, the goal is to redefine the way we look at minimalism and modern fashion.
One of Emefa’s guiding design principles is to focus on the technical construction of each garment. She believes that a unique item of clothing should be able to attract one’s attention even if its made using plain fabric. If she uses printed fabric in an outfit, it is specially designed to accentuate the style, but not be the only interesting element in the garment.
