Also, many fashion brands now offer eye-catching clothing and accessories that speak to one's inner discodiva.

Sneakers, boots, jackets, pants, skirts, dresses, collars, belts and bags – everything is available nowadays to get put with sequins. Extra popular in recent time has two-toned reversible sequins (or flip sequins) have been for extra glamorous effect.

consider the interest for the sequins as a reaction against the functional sports - and streetwearmode, whose design and thought stands in a kind of contradiction for a decorative glitter. Maybe it's an easy way to brighten up the gloomy times. Many people associate despite all of the glitz with happy moments.

Clearly says in all cases that paljetten is a detail that has long graced the robes.

Already in the year 1300 before Christ was created in the three thousand round small slices of gold that was sewn on to the garments that the egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamen bar when his tomb was opened in 1922. It is regarded as ”the first paljetterna”.

the Discovery of his tomb, and all of the items that were there including paljetterna, led to a sudden vurmande for ancient Egypt over the whole of the western world.

the Pyramids, sphinxes, and hieroglyphs appeared in architecture, interior architecture and, not least, the fashion in which the passage of fashionable women, called flappers, began to bear knäkorta dresses klirrade of small sewn metallskivor when they kicked with his legs to dances like The Charleston.

It has never been so easy, or cheap, to anyone, to this day shine like a star, even for everyday wear.

They were certainly easier, but could neither heat or water. They could simply melt or drain away while you wore them.

Only then plastics came into the picture took paljetten momentum within the modern fashion, and it's thanks to the film, literally.

A man by the name of Herbert Lieberman, who worked in the u.s. garment industry, got kameraföretaget Eastman Kodak to produce a breed of his new film, of acetate for him. It was painted with a transparent color and the effect made him pleased to note that it starts the ”if you painted a mirror with the nail Polish”. It was nice, but unfortunately very fragile.

was paljetterna until 1952 when the american chemical company DuPont invented a material called Mylar. Today most of the sequins made of durable pvc, polyvinyl chloride, and can withstand a lot, even to be washed.

So the answer to why sequins are so popular is perhaps not particularly complicated. It has simply never been so easy, or cheap, to anyone, to this day shine like a star, even for everyday wear.
