Yes, it's beacuase of those electric pleats in this dress' bottom.
Most guys at work thought that the style is definitely vintage and they were right too. And another officemate even gave me a crash course on it. She said that the reason it's called electric pleat is because the material is "cooked", meaning pressed with intense heat for it to remain eternally pleated.

Thanks for the brief history Sherl!

On me: thrifted dress, random belt, Figlia bag, CMG ballet flats
