British Pakistani fashion model turned designer Danish Wakeel reaches Italian high fashion- Rendez-vous De La Mode

Famed for his international commercial success in the recent years, Danish Wakeel is known for translating his fervent interest in historical themes to fashion couture collections. Young, ambitious British Pakistani model turned designer has the ability to communicate and celebrate diverse inspirations. His idiosyncratic take on a dominant idea, notion, concept, color, era, form or a motif with a twist has enabled his creations to retain modernity and high end luxury. Making fashion and feature films with British and European actors is only the tip of the iceberg for Danish’s uncompromising vision for contemporary menswear and womenswear.
