Super Sale! 1960s Malcolm Starr Gold Braid, Sequin & Beaded Dress

$425 USD $725 USD

This exceptional Malcolm Starr dress is absolutely gorgeous and these far more elaborate pieces like this one, from this label, are getting harder and harder to come across. When woman do find them they are snatched up and tucked away The work is exceptional and you could not possibly get this level of bead and sequin work a modern day ready to wear equivalent. The base of the dress is made of a plush cotton velvet in an inky black and this has been cut into that perfect sixties sculpted shape. The velvet is then densely covered from top to bottom with a swirling design application of gold braiding, a mixed variety of beads and sequins that cover the dress in an intricate pattern. At the waist, cuffs and hem the sequins are applied to completely cover the fabric and highlight the lines of the dress. The bead work has a 3D quality to it so you really get this wonderful sense of texture. It is just beautiful. I love the simple shift shape and the way it glimmers in the light. Excellent condition
