A breathtaking, rare 1940s evening gown by Ted Shore for Frank Starr Original.
The Frank Starr Originals label was well known in the 40s and 50s and the name became synonymous with the glamorous, high quality, beautifully made garments he brought to the ready-to-wear market.
The label would later change when his son Malcolm, who had been hired as a costume designer took over the company.
The new label Malcolm Starr would continue with great success and strengthen the company’s reputation for high quality, beautiful designs. The addition of elaborate beadwork and sequin adornments to silk metallic fabrics, was his contribution in revitalizing the classic styles of the 60s and 70s.
His unmistakable designs were highly coveted and remain iconic to this day!
However, you don’t need to be a history buff to appreciate the skillful work that went into making this magnificent gown which demonstrates the timeless and quintessential style of
