WHAT'S SHIMMERING AT LIZ OGUMBO FASHION...

 Sequinize!

While some can't leave the house without it, others say they've had enough as they rush for their glasses to manage the potential photophobic effects from the bright shimmer.

The etymology of the word “sequin” can be traced from the Arabic word “sikka” which means coin. “sikkas” were used to decorate clothing throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean for centuries.

In thirteenth century Venitians produced coins called “zecchinos,” a pure gold coin they minted in 1284 to embellish clothing. The French later referred to the coins assequin, and this was the form later adopted into English.

The purpose of using “sikkas” and “zecchinos” to adorn clothing was to demonstrate wealth and power while in other cultures, the shiny metal discs were used to ward off and distract evil spirits.

Today while some cultures still use fake coins made out of metal to decorate costumes, like 'belly dancing wraps, we @lizogumbo are celebrating the new fresh and countless ways to wear our new-era sequin.
