1960s Yellow Metallic Silk Malcolm Starr

The colors in this gown are amazing - they are just stunning and when combined with the gold metallic threads that run top to bottom on this gown it is just beautiful. The photos do not quite capture the subtle gold gleam of the dress. The exterior layer is a silk chiffon that besides the gold threading has a wonderful print that suggests feathers - very special! I love Malcolm Starr pieces and have many in my archives and have already sold as equally a number but this is the first time I have seen this cut of dress! The design is amazing and the one shoulder gives it a definitive goddess feel! It falls in a sheath of fabric over the body and has an additional panel of fabric on one side that drapes and warps over to hide the side zipper and give the dress extra drape and volume! If you even remotely love it in the photos you will be floored in person - it is better! Excellent condition

Fully lined in a sheath of pale tangerine silk crepe that is lined with a silk chiffon. The very upper portion of the dress is lined in a lingerie weight nude net. Elastic edges the top neckline and it closes at the side with a painted metal zipper. The side panel of fabric wraps and hooks into place.
