Reel Begins. Designer label, Krizia, Fall 1987 Fashion Show in Milan

The second group of models wear many versions of the same print blouse, belted, tunic, long and short. with skirts, tights and berets.
Z'out from the stage and runway. The stage is crowded with groups of models, the music is joyful, and silhouettes of the audience pressed against the runway. The models are seen waving goodbye as the light dims and they leave the stage.
Models in faux (maybe) animal print fur jackets and coats and wearing berets walk the runway. Photographers up against the runway taking photos. Bulbs flash as the models walk by.
The next group of fashion models wear midi length belted wool (probably cashmere) coats, as well as long leather coats lined in shearling with big sleeves and wide shearling cuffs.
A beautiful Black model wears a puffy, wide quilted style, long coat with a belt, gloves and hat. She works the outfit, hugging herself, smiling and twirling. She removes the coat to reveal a long, belted, loose wool dress. Other models follow in various versions of luxurious, long and flowing, cashmere coats, dresses, and skirt with matching tops.
Models continue down the runway in winter coats - long, luxurious fur coats that almost touch the ground, skirt suits with fur detail on the jackets.
The next segment continues with more winter wear - alot of coats in leather and fur trim. Models walk in shorter brown wool plaid jackets with extremely wide fur cuffs, fur collars and leather skirts. Some wear long brown leather coats or shorter leather jackets with 1980's style large sleeved and padded shoulders.
CU on a White model wearing a long brown leather coat and big 1980's style earrings. She removes the coat to reveal a long brown wool plaid with a jacket with giant shoulder pads - typical of the 1980's.
