Meet the Team | Gabriela Koleva | Costume Designer

Age - 32

Occupation - Costume Designer/ Stylist/ Model

Location -  Bulgaria/ NYC 

When were you first approached to be a part of the MI team? What were your initial thoughts? In a restaurant in the Lower East Side of New York, which is the same place where Milking It was written by the director, and my friend later on, Fredgy Noël. I read the script for the first time I thought it was a true and touching story. 

What is your role in MI? Costume designer 

Favorite memory of filming? Walking under the rain with Fredgy while moving to the second location on the first day of shooting and, of course, without umbrellas. We stopped for a Latte and a cigarette break on our way. 

Favorite scene? The opening scene- Josephine in the bathroom on the phone.

How has MI impacted your life? Career? With comfort on both fronts.

Have you ever felt like Josephine, liking your boyfriends mom more than your boyfriend? No

What are your hopes for the film and rest of the crew? I hope the film travels to as many countries as possible and every “Josephine” out there can get the chance to see it. 

Do you have any parting thoughts you'd like to share?  I hope there will be Milking IT part 2 .. :)
