1960s Metallic Gino Charles for Malcolm Starr Dress

How absolutely gorgeous is this dress? Made by Gino Charles for Malcolm Starr, it is yet another shining example of why we love these kind of pieces around here. I love the slightly medieval vibe it has created by the placement of the panels. It has a real richness to it with that pretty green tone mixed with the gold thread and contrasting pink panels. It is made of a screened poly organza with little gold thread medallions woven through it. The medallions are scattered over both the pink and green panels so the entire dress has a subtle glint in the light. Each panel is separated by a waved gold cord that has little green rhinestones set in the tops of each wave. Very pretty.  This combined with the way the colors are laid out really creates a nice, hippie chic, exotic feel. I love the full puffed sleeves that billow above each cuffed wrist. The neck is simple and high and the skirt is full but not overly . It is a beautiful, dramatic piece and presents as excellent condition.

Fully lined in a pale pink silk with the sleeves left unlined. It closes with a back painted metal zipper . Each cuff closes with hidden set snaps. Note that there are perspiration marks on the inner lining. They do not show at all on the exterior but are present inside. It has been professionally cleaned (as are all our garments) and there are no odours or other issues. I have reduced the price substantially so you are getting an amazing dress at about half the price for an issue that does not show when on. Note that the colors are a little more "pastels" and softer then how it photoed
