Reel Begins. Continuation of Reel VC-743, fashion designer Georgio Armani fall fashion show in Milan 1987.
Fashion models walk the runway in beautiful long woolen coat with padded shoulders, a style popular in the 1980's. They enter and exit the runway through a prop door with Georgio Armani's name.
Two African American girls appear at the doorway. They model long black and white checkered skirts paired with mid lenght and short tight sweaters with a ruffle around the cuff. They are followed by another model wearing a similar skirt but with a very long chic tight black sweater.
The show continues and fashion models wear a variety of classic elegant and feminine Armani looks - a black pantsuit with a long black collarless jacket and pleated pants, a long '40's style dress with pleats on the back of the skirt and padded shoulders, feminine dresses, long capes, long skirts with matching jackets.
Models wearing flowing jumpsuits with extremely padded shoulders walk the runway. The audience applauds. WS of the models on the runway and the audience looking on completely engaged and motionless, with notepads on their laps.
The fashion looks continue. Models wear long black dresses with stark white .
collars. Two models with long to the ground very full skirts with cinched waist black jackets and white collared blouses walk together down the runway. Similar long full skirt looks follow.
The fashion becomes a bit more evening wear. A model wearing a black velvet coat over black pants walks, others follow in more of a formal look wearing long black gowns.
The audience looks on seriously, taking notes and photos. Evening wear continues.
