The Controversial and Monumental fashion editorial for Danish Wakeel, London

The fashion world is constantly changing. Great minds are inspired by the most diverse and obscure situations of society, their habits, their ideas and also their defeats. International model and fashion designer Danish Wakeel was arousing to a particular emotional product of an intense research on drugs, sexuality and the dark sides of a society without inhibition. I like the brave selection of colours that Danish always brings to the menswear and his intellectual ideas that always lie behind his collections, and so would like to share his great new photos with you.

The “Controversial and Monumental fashion editorial” featuring Danish´s latest A/W´14 collection was organized by an upcoming fashion designer and stylist Lucas Bueno and his team of professionals. Without the strong contribution of all these excellent professionals and their skills and talents achieving the brief wouldn’t happen. Translating themes into fashion that are per se complex requires a lot of research and commitment.
The indulgence and seduction of the collection and the melody sang by two live performers Rose Parsons and Stanley Volk, brought an atmosphere of debauchery and playfulness on set which was easy to make all the models get inside the theme the designer wanted to portray.

Fashion is a multicultural road! Danish wanted to bring a new language by working with models of different nationalities and backgrounds. For Danish, it was all about cultural richness. Lucas gave special attention on choosing the team, from MUAs to the models and photographers, focusing on cultural richness. Studies about Sociology prove that actions, ideas and intensions are a result of cultural processes connected to the roots of every individual and based on this thought the theme was explored.
The Controversial and Monumental fashion editorial for Danish Wakeel A/W´14 is about bringing the inhibition of society and its rage of actions and emotions through multicultural ways.
