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. Burlesque legend Gypsy Rose Lee was known for her dark and daring showgirl costumes, featuring noir tassels, laces, and plumes. Some of her costumes had heart shaped bustlines, and some embellished with sparkling star motifs.
