Malcolm Starr Rhinestone Organza Print Dress, 1970s



The 1970s embodied an interesting time for fashion. As the world became more connected and various cultural revolutions emerged, fashion became increasingly more playful and acted as an outlet for freedom and expression. Having tremendous traction in the US and East Asia, Malcom Starr’s designs represented these qualities of the time and were well received due to the range of options he offered. Done in an eggshell organza, this dress features a wild motif with abstract botanical forms in tones of yellow-green, marine blue, mango, azure, tangerine, and rose. From a shallow boat neck line, the dress flows into soft bishop sleeves. A semi-fitted bodice transitions into a crisply flounced A-line skirt from an empire waistline that visually elongates the wearer. Throughout, hand sewn gold stitching and prong-set rhinestones add texture and a subtle gleam to the dress. Finished with a striking violet velvet bow belt, this charming, vintage 70s dress is an artistic piece that is a flattering option for intimate gatherings and events alike. Size estimate: S/M Measurements: Shoulders: 14 inches Sleeves: 22.5 inches Bust: 34-36 inches Waist: 28 inches Hips: full Length: 54 inches This dress closes at centre back with hooks and eyes on the bodice and a zip from the waist down. The sleeve cuffs fasten with covered buttons and loops. Thread chains are located at either side to hold the belt in place. Faced with organza and lined in a matching off-white fabric, this dress has a semi-sheer look. Professionally eco dry cleaned and pressed, this dress is in excellent condition. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
