1960s Malcolm Starr Silver Metallic Brocade Dress

This Malcolm Starr is stunning. The fabric hits you right off - it is a beautiful silver metallic brocade with a diamond pattern running over it that has a touch of dimension so you really get amazing play on light. The dress is cut with a baby doll silhouette with a definitive swing cut to it as the skirt widens out with a dramatic sweep. The waist line is high and big bold buttons adorn the front, emphasizing that Alice in Wonderland, baby doll feel even more. The sleeves are long and slim. The buttons at the front are incredible - each is a domed metal button with cut work and rhinestones laid along its curved surface - almost like little crowns. The detail I love the most though is that fabulous soft curved peat created at the front and the fact the along each side seam are little hidden pockets. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a silver toned silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The zipper is set to follow and be hidden by the seam up on side! The front metal domed buttons are inlaid with rhinestones and I see no missing stones. They are decorative only. Front pockets along the seam. Hand finished.
