History:
Tassels date back ages ago, from Egyptian headdresses, to King Louis XIV, and his French Royal Court, and were always used as a symbol of either status, luxury, or luck. Tassels adorned the costumes of European royalty and their residences, as well as the nipple pasties and costumes of Burlesque performers and Showgirls of the 1920s-1960s. A major star of the 1940s, Carmen Miranda was known as the Brazillian bombshell, with her trademark Latin style ensembles, dripping with colors and crystals.
