This is kind of fun. Designers are taking the normally unseen zipper and making it a part of the look of the fashion for the avant garde. Designers like Behnaz Sarafpur, Suh-Tahn, and Phillip Lim have incorporated the industrial zipper into diagonal lines, patterns, pockets, and shoes. Unzip and enjoy the show.

Implications - As times change, the function of certain items become redefined as new generations reinterpret the world. Designers worldwide should be taking note as fashion evolves, transforming materials and techniques into garments that have never been seen before. It's important to keep looking into the many possibilities that each piece brings. What is considered avant-garde now could one day become the norm in the future.
