  • Description

    London.

    Remploy Ltd. have manufactured an invisible zip that will revolutionise women's fashions.

    A model dressed in an oatmeal tweed suit is seen window shopping. C/U of her jacket - the fabric is too thick to lie flat.

    M/S of a designer at a table (possibly Charles William Davies), he is giving instructions to a seamstress. Pan to the seamstress adding a hidden zip to the model's jacket that will improve the fit.

    Mr. A. M. Ross-Smith, managing director of British Alco Invisible zipper, demonstrates a hidden zip in a skirt to William Davies' secretary, Alison West. M/S of a dresser zipping up a model's dress.

    A model demonstrates an underarm hidden zip in a Teddy Tinling tennis dress to a group of people at Charles William Davies' fashion showrooms. Various shots of different models wearing a variety of garments from coats to swimsuits with hidden zips in. C/U of a model taking bank notes out of her hidden pocket - these zips have a practical use too!

    The models are named as Carol Naylor, Susan Milne and Ann Renvoize. Also featured is Vera Turland, director of Foley-Brickley Publicity Ltd.

    Remploy employs soldiers disabled in the last war to manufacture the zips.
