No longer exclusive to the nightclub/night-entertainment industry, liquid metal dresses, reminiscent of the days of Dynasty, are making a come-back, transcending the runway from stripper-fabulous to evening gown chic.

With considerably more fabric and considerably less emphasis on volume and ruching, these metallic dresses give off the appearance of cascading sheets of molten metal, giving the fabric the justifiable term 'liquid metal.'

Implications - Long fluid dresses are making a comeback thanks to a demographic who wants a more sophisticated look for a night out. The maturity and class this style evokes is much sought after by consumers who want to look classy. Brands are more than happy to oblige with designs that will change the face of formal wear.
