The Island’ Red-Carpet and Premiere at Leicester Square, London.

Last week in the heart of the West End at Leicester Square in London, saw the release of the anticipated feature film, The Island, by fashion designer Danish Wakeel.

The Island is a film inspired by the Italian cornucopia supervened by the heritage and the avalanche of Venice.

The Island is a trilogy with the first part written by Jacob James and the remaining two parts written by Dziko Kazembe.

Danish Wakeel not only featured in the film itself but was hands on directing the film. Showing his talents in front and behind the camera.
Danish Wakeel:

“It was my first feature film and if I be perfectly truthful, being a fashion model and a fashion designer I had to step out of my comfort zone to make a feature film. It was an absolutely nerve racking and tiresome experience for me and I faced many problems which any director would face in his first film. But the experience has been extremely enriching and a real rewarding one. I amalgamated British professional actors with my fashion in the film and it was thrilling to flirt with a completely alien branch of creativity and juxtapose it with my craft”
