What defines a zipper as “invisible”, please? I’ve only ever come across the term in the context of technique to sew in a zipper so that it doesn’t scream “zipper here” when you look at the garment.

An invisible zipper is sewn into the seam, and as the name implies, you do not see the zipper at all. The only thing you will see is the zipper pull

A standard zipper is what most of us are used to seeing, and is one where you do see the zipper, and generally some of the zipper tape. You can probably Google to see pictures that will show it better than I can explain it.
