What is a fashion "screening"?
Sorry, but I have no idea where to post this but I figure the mods will move this accordingly.

I was invited to a "screening" by my SA who works at Dolce & Gabbana to be held at a very exclusive restaurant. What is a screening and what should one wear to it? She said it like "it's just a screening but I'm only allowed to invite 8 clients from this store."

I figure a lot of people work in the fashion industry here so they would know. Please help!

Hmmm ... I dunno ... but is that gonna stop me from commenting? :p

Well, obviously they're gonna show you their wares, but she didn't call it a fashion show (which implies models), she didn't call it an installation, and she didn't call it a trunk show, so I wonder if they're going to show you their runway show ... on a screen?? I'm sure someone else knows much more than I do tho

I think you should wear a cross between what you'd wear to a Dolce fashion show, and what you'd normally wear to that restaurant ... leaning toward the former.

I'd say just go with a white tee, vest...well cut casual blazer...casual trousers and shoes...and if you want to be adventurous...slip a thin scarf in...

Thanks for the advice guys... I'm thinking of wearing a black Lanvin skirt, and a white blouse. Hopefully it should be fine.

Fashionista, I think what you said was right, it's prob. a screening of their spring show - unfortunately, I actually don't own a lot of Dolce stuff... it's not my style, so it's odd that she invited me but I think it's prob. b/c I used to purchase a lot of stuff in that store mostly for gifts though.

Clothes on plastic mannequins? Or would that be called something else?

To me that would be an installation, but who knows

maybe it's something like a preview show without models?
That's my guess....
