Gold in fashion is not new, but Roxana Pansino has revolutionized its use.
Historical finds demonstrate the use of this precious material since the Egyptian pharaohs, which were dressed in quilted gowns of gold. In the Tutankhamon’s tomb there were found items including many gold sandals. Between 1300 and 1400 in Europe for the most well-to-do, wires of gold were used to decorate wool or silk dresses; The nobles loved to dress in this precious color.
A color that has left an indelible mark even in the cinema world. Every diva chose during her career a gold plush dress to remember her.
