1960s Malcolm Starr Red Metallic Maxi Dress

A gorgeous Malcolm Starr in a pretty red and gold silk chiffon. The print is a graphic red on the white chiffon and then running through this are circles of gold thread in various sizes. I love the dramatic tie at the neck - it is actually an extension of the collar and you can tie it loose and long or wrap it to create a more scarf like effect. Each sleeve poufs above the cuffed wrists.. The waist cinches in and the belt is original to the dress. There is a lot of fabric through the skirt and it is cut on the bias so really moves wonderfully! Great overall condition.

Fully lined in a pale pink silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each cuff closes with hidden snaps at the wrist. The tie is attached at the neck. Has its original belt that is in great condition. Note that there is some discoloration to the inside upper lining but it of course does not show through. There are some spots and faint discolorations on the sleeves and some very small once scattered on the skirt near the waist - these are all lost in the pattern but are there. I have priced it accordingly.
