Danish Wakeel " Death Being Eroticized"
The collection was high fashion menswear show pieces inspired by the subculture ‘Goth’ and dark glamour and it is inspired by death, decay, cruelty, dark glamour and elements of fetishism. we can describe Danish Wakeel in 7 words as Ultra stylish, tailored, high fashion menswear brand for a man who is ready for a new take on fashion and who is very confident at the same time is a bit of an exhibitionist and a narcissistic.
Danish Wakeel takes his inspiration and creativity in believing that nothing comes from a vacuum and the only place to find inspiration an ideas is what people in the past were wearing and taking inspiration at the same time retaining the originality by giving it your own individual twist.
Danish Wakeel looks up to a lot of fashion designers firstly being the late Alexander McQueen who to him was the father of creativity. Danish loves his rebellious attitude towards his collection and theatrical representations. Vivienne Westwood , Jean Paul Gaultier and Gareth Pugh are also the designers Danish Wakeel looks up to.
