About

With the sparkling rhinestones and vibrant emerald-green color, this dazzling 1960's Malcolm Starr evening gown does not disappoint. The substantial weight of the layered silk-chiffon fabric whispers high-end luxury. The bodice is an elegant shelf-bust empire with dramatic jeweled collar. Little ruched stitches run in vertical rows; giving the garment so much depth and texture. This figure flattering designer gown accentuates the bust, skims the hips and flows to the floor in pure goddess perfection. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture.
The design house was started in the 1940's by his father, Frank, a well-known figure in the textile industry. During that period, the family was one of the first to operate boutiques in Hong Kong and Japan. "Even members of the royal family in Japan wore his fashions,'' said Starr's sister, Gloria Starr Kins. "You would always see at least 30 percent of the women in any elite country club wearing a Malcolm Starr." It is clear to see why Malcolm Starr's evening dresses are so sought after today. This one has a timeless glamour that will turn heads.
