Plot Synopsis

Designers, celebrity stylists and experts deconstruct iconic fashion items, revealing each piece's history, importance and status. From the origins of the bikini, to the military significance of the pea coat and how the jockstrap was once considered a medical cure for kidney failure and insomnia, STYLE UNZIPPED uncovers the secrets of clothing and accessories we wear today. Each 30-minute episode highlights three or four different pieces of clothing or accessories, including: how skinny jeans can sometimes be too revealing; how tighty whities evolved to look better on a woman; how the bridesmaid dress can protect a woman from evil; how King Tut's eyeliner helped launch a 56 billion dollar cosmetic industry; how khakis went from camo to college; how the garter belt went from practicality to sexuality; how the drop crotch went from harem pants to hammer pants; how a president almost killed the fedora; how Hindu gods began a fashion revolution; how the tutu can be both fairytale and fetish; how the bikini was inspired by an atomic explosion; how the high heel was given a boost by pornography; how the wedding ring wasn't always a symbol of eternal love; and more fashion items like lipstick, the tuxedo, jean shorts, the Hawaiian shirt, the bomber jacket, the cowboy hat, and more.
