TO - 12/27 - zip… zipper… zipping… z…

It was the year of 2003, in fact it was the Fall 2003 collection, which in fashion trend years, might as well have been forever ago. Exposed zippers, applied unexpectedly on pretty dresses, were sent down the runway (like Alber Elbaz for the house of Lanvin ) and started a craze.

So inspired by all those zippers I designed a skirt, bought a black pencil skirt and made it customize.

Now that we can see recent zipper looks from Versace, Narcisco Rodriguez, Yves Saint Laurent and Proenza Schouler, I think it’s time to feel “zipper” again, with my 2003 zippers skirt.
