Black Friday kicks off the season of sales and gift shopping. Initially, however, it had a much less positive meaning.
The expression “Black Friday” originated in the second half of the 19th century, and it had nothing to do with shopping. On Friday, September 24, 1869, there was a market crash in the United States, caused by the fall in the price of gold. The American economy could not recover from this crisis for several years.
However, times change, and a century later, the first meaning of “Black Friday” has been forgotten.
In the 50-60-is of the XX century, the police of Philadelphia began to use it to designate… traffic jams. Every year on the Friday after Thanksgiving, the city was filled with people who wanted to buy New Year’s gifts. They caused traffic congestion and crowds in shops, provoking the discontent of police officers.
So, the period after Thanksgiving and before Christmas is the most lucrative for store owners. Therefore, back in the 60s, businessmen thought about giving the expression “Black Friday” a new, more positive meaning. In Philadelphia, advertising campaigns were carried out that aimed to create a positive image of the event. “The best day of the year to go shopping with the family” – this is how the media described Black Friday.
There was even an attempt to rename “Black Friday” to “Big Friday” to draw a parallel with the huge discounts, but the new name did not catch on.
Currently, Black Friday has gone beyond the boundaries of the state of Philadelphia: similar promotions can be found all over the world. However, this event is still the largest in the United States. Black Friday has been a host of entertainment events such as the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. The event was first organized in 1924 to bring visitors to Macy’s department store the next day, Black Friday.
Black Friday remains the most profitable period of the year. According to statistics, in the United States, sales amount to billions of dollars in just a day. This is how a new association with the name arose: “in the black” in English means “to gain profit”, that is, to make a profit.
Many stores (both large chain stores and small ones) began to create various discounts or even special products that relate specifically to this day. It has become so popular that now it is difficult to imagine a large brand that would miss such an opportunity to create new products.
The Sleeper Team was no exception to the general rule, and here’s why.
The fact is that the co-founders of the brand, Kate Zubareva, and Asya Varetsa, treat the Christmas holidays with great trepidation. After all, it was the aesthetics of the American Christmas that once inspired the girls to create their first pajama collection. Kate often said that on Christmas night she had a dream about a pajama factory.
In addition, the main goal of Asya and Katya is to create a new culture for people – a culture of comfort, taking care of themselves and their loved ones, coziness.
Of course, this culture includes the art of making nice gifts for friends and being happy about small things.
That is why there was no way for Asya and Katya to ignore Black Friday. It is on this day that shoppers can buy gifts to make their loved ones happy on Christmas Day with luxurious pajamas made of linen or viscose, cardigans, or dresses from a unique brand.
The label, under the interesting name Sleeper, was created about 7 years ago by the idea of two truly brilliant women who, before creating their brand, worked as editors in well-known magazines from the fashion world. This company was able to gain incredible popularity around the world thanks to its innovative idea. The girls thought that it is not necessary to have different clothes for outdoor activities and a home night in your favorite warm bed. Thus, Kate Zubaryeva and Asya Varetsa created a special type of Black Friday pajamas sets for chilling at home and going to work or walking.
- 4 years ago, Sleeper’s special linen dress was voted the finest women’s clothing in the entire United States of America.
- You can personally see and buy pajamas from different collections of this great label if you are a resident of a pretty big country.
- Also, you can check the page of their online shop, where you can order something from the new collections – https://the-sleeper.com/en/attr-type/party-pajamas-en/.
The Sleeper company has been able to achieve truly amazing results and firmly establish itself in the global market. Many famous personalities rate their diverse collections positively with the most interesting idea of combining home and streetwear without the need to strongly divide their wardrobe. Already many women around the world use these pajamas and leave the most positive reviews, so you don’t have to worry about the quality of the products!
The production of Sleeper Party pajamas has always been associated not with large supplies and tailoring, which are used by almost all well-known companies and brands, but with real human tailoring in as many quantities as needed. No more no less.
Absolutely all products are created in the main sewing workshops of this brand, and each item of the product is very carefully monitored by the best professionals in the field of sewing. Thus, each piece of clothing that embarks on its journey from this workshop is a real masterpiece and its quality can amaze even the most severe critic. Sleeper always follows their commandments and does not try to mechanically facilitate work in favor of time of creation, not quality – working on one piece of clothing can take up to 10 hours. Each collection is a real art that all employees of the company can be proud of.
The great thing about sleeper pajamas is their versatility. Women who value their comfort can easily find a suitable set whether it be:
- Party pajamas with feathers
