Gold Dresses Kaleidoscope. Dresses with threads of precious metals are very heavy, taking into account the mantle plume of any coronation dress. It’s hard even to imagine how difficult it was to wear them. Nevertheless, almost all the coronation gowns include fabric with metallic threads and were decorated with real gold and silver embroidery. In the XX century, there were two periods when the metallic threads and Lurex were very much in fashion. First – in the late 60’s and early 70’s, second – in the late 80-early 90’s. Silver and gold, glitter and lurex were periodically in and out of fashion, and now there is a return of interest in metallic texture in a suit, shoes and accessories.
