The holiday season is over and the idea of wearing sequin has disappeared from your mind. Well, it is surely still embedded in mine. Sequin screams extravaganza and I enjoy rocking it.
The origins of this fabric can be traced all the way back to Ancient Egypt. According to Smithsonian magazine, Tutankhamun the great Egyptian pharaoh who ruled from
1341 to 1323 B.C. had gold sequin-like disks sewn into his garments. Historians assume these disks represented the pharaoh's sartorial splendor and financial success in the afterlife. The word sequin itself finds its roots in the Arabic word Sikka which means “coin”.
Over the centuries, sequin evolved from gold and silver coins sewed on clothes as a symbol of status to shiny plastics added to fabrics, footwear, and bags for attention-grabbing glamour. You can incorporate a little sparkle in your closet with this evening dress making for a stunningly elegant silhouette.
