I visited my local John Lewis to have a look at some potential zips to use on the alternate versions of my garments. I found several that were almost perfect such as the two below on the right. The left was a little too long and was silver instead of gold, but the right was denim instead of black fabric. I compromised and picked up the left one to feature in my project folder.
John Lewis did have a wide arrange of zips in varying colours, materials and lengths. The majority however were plastic and suited better for skirts, dresses or suit trousers. There was little choice for decorative zips rather than purely functional ones.
