Besides the jewelry you put on, there is nothing more stylish in party wear than adding some shimmer to your ensemble, whether it’s in the form of a jacket, shrug, bag or just shoes. The purpose of bling is to make a great outfit an outstanding and mesmerizing one. Sequins help achieve this easily and make the graceful Anarkali Suit more alluring and enthralling.
Origin of Sequencing
Traditional sequins, also known as “Chamki” by Urdu craftsmen, are small round beads, that shine and have a hole in the middle. Sequins owe their origins to Indian apparel, although western designs use them more prolifically today. Some party dresses and gowns are totally made of sequins, but ethnic styles are a mix of embroidery and sequins sewn on various fabrics. Today, you can find sequins on every type of garment. They add glossy texture and can be found in an overabundance of geometrical shapes and colours. Some types of sequins are glued onto the fabric, but you should pick those that are sewed on for long-lasting.
