Fashion Forward

Screen Style fuses fashion and film into a can't-miss event


The Seahawks aren't the only ones styling sick fashions.

One of the best-kept secrets about Seattle is how fashion forward we all are, off the field, too. After winter, we emerge from our waterproof layers ready to rock out whatever local designers have stitched up.

Nowhere is that more apparent than at Screen Style, an annual intersection of movies and fashion and one of winter's must-attend events.

Five Seattle designers and tastemakers have selected films that inspire them, from Hal Ashby's 1975 satire Shampoo to the 1931 Marlene Dietrich vehicle The Devil Is a WomanSelectors include SAM curator Chiyo Ishikawa and Baby & Co owners Jill and Wayne Donnelly, elevating these beyond any ol' Netflix fare.

Before the Friday and Saturday screenings, there are fancy dress happy hours to mix and mingle with like-minded style icons.

In addition, for your holiday shopping needs, a pop-up shop on Sunday will be selling outfits and accessories inspired by 2009's An Education (which is also screening).

Sure, nobody can see your outfit in a dark theater, but the house lights have to come up eventually.

Make sure you look swag when they do.
