I love the details on this gown, they make me think of elaborate steam punk imagery that uses nuts and bolts and other metal fastenings, steam powered contraptions, strange welded together bits of metal and so on. But then they also have a more of a solar punk feel. Solar punk is a recent genre that I've been thinking about and looking into, it is quite futuristic and often involves the use of solar energies as a power source, I imagine it would also involve the use of any green renewable energy sources, sun or star burst motif imagery, (thank you Disney's Tangled).
These coils and things that look like bolts and screw heads look amazing. It is mostly bead work or large bead/gem work as you can see from the borrowed imagery:
