Okay, so if the iPhone 4’s audio capture isn’t WOWing you as much as it’s capability to capture stunning visuals <ahem>, above is a behind the scenes video of Valissa being interviewed by Tokyo TV (aka NHK) at Levi’s® Workshop in SoHo for her NHK spotlight. Pause. That’s right, Haus of Yoe is going international! Valissa has been selected by 日本放送協会 “NHK,” Japan’s national broadcasting corporation, as one of the international artists to be featured on a new television program hosted by the legendary Takeshi Kitano (Google him! This Japanese icon is a true Renaissance man. You won’t be disappointed).

You’ll have to wait until the show airs to see her night on the town at Le Bain (The Standard, New York‘s notorious, rooftop hotspot), where she popped bottles with her cronies and traded fashion notes with Nas! We’re wondering if rapper Nas’s appearance will make the final cut, as the segment was all about V—especially as she donned a show-stopping, lipstick-red, Mongolian-lamb fur coat that night, per statement-making usual.

Back to the video content…

Valissa chose to showcase her artistic vision for Japan and all of you Haus of Yoe supporters to see in this photoshoot with friend/talented photographer, Kareem Black, and the fabulous model/New York personality, Raquel Reed! DJ Jess Jubilee kept the creative energy flowing all day with a thumping DJ set, while bloggers Angela Yew, William Yan, Ladies Lotto watched all of the beautiful chaos unfold.
