Example of an open ended zipper from the Autumn-Winter 2012 collection by Anrealage. Open ended zips are often used as a closure at the front of garments such as jackets. This example would also be classified as an “exposed zipper” due to the fact that it is clearly visible, and is not hidden under a fold of fabric.
