Wow, that's reasonable. I've never had a zip replaced. Good to know. I think that "structure" in garments is what I like about Dior. It seems obvious but clothes should make us look better. if the designer can get the basic shape correct then a garment makes a woman look more beautiful--taller, slimmer, more proportional. Then when a tailor tweeks it specially for the wearer, there is a distinct look of fit and polish. That's why they look so great on these shows--their clothes are tailored to the nth degree. Sometimes maybe women forget that clothes don't normally come like that. I will look for Robin's dress!
