Through the years, tassels which were a symbol of power and prestige have become a functional and decorative object offering stylised options to the lifestyle and fashion world depending on it’s origin, the cultures that use it, and how it has evolved over the centuries.

From a historical angle, tassels use even date back to the Hebrew Bible where the Lord spoke to Moses instructing him to tell the Israelites to make tassels (Hebrew tzitzit) on the corners of their garments, to help them to remember all the commandments of the Lord and to keep them (Numbers 15:37-40), and as a sign of holiness.

In sixteenth century France, a formal guild for passementerie was formed; a group of artisans specialising in tassels and trimmings as artwork. These elaborate embellishments may have taken weeks or months to create from the finest materials.

Today through my design work, I have decided to use tassels to bring back fun, sass and play in fashion by applying them to the sleeves on different styles and pieces.

Swing, slay and style in this A-Line tassel-sleeve cocktail mini dress served in nothing but print while you shake out that sass and get to play.

This Piece is fully lined and stuffed in tulle for that extra volume.

Visit us and treat yourself to something special.

Yours fabulously,
