We have all got the Fall 08 runway trends memorized: the color black, country chic, black lace, strong silhouettes, modest necklines, etc etc. I love all those, but for me zippers will also be on my list.
You may be asking"butModern Marie, aren't zippers on all most of our clothes anyways?" Well yes they are but no longer will they just be for practicality, now they actually accent a garment.
If you look closely at particularly the YSL and Pre-Fall Chanel, you can see clearly exposed zippers - places where they should be as well as places out of the ordinary, like a trim on an entire jacket.
i think zippers add an extravagant yet rocker look to an outfit.
Love this purse in the July 08 issue of Harpers Bazaar by YSL.
Of course all this zipper talk got me in the mood for a DIY. I saw a flower zipper broach in February's Teen Vogue and had to figure out a way to make it. I went to Jo-Anns and bought one long black zipper (its near the thread), but they have every color and metal color imaginable. I pretty much just unzipped it and started looping and hot gluing from the outside in. I had to play around with it before I started hot gluing it in place. Then I hot glued a broach pin on the back and ZIPPIDY DO DAH!
