The design house was inaugurated in the 1940's by Malcolm's father, Frank - a well-known figure in the textile industry. The family was one of the first to operate boutiques in Hong Kong and Japan. "Even members of the royal family in Japan wore his fashions,'' said Starr's sister, Gloria Starr Kins. "You would always see at least 30 percent of the women in any elite country club wearing a Malcolm Starr." The typical Malcolm Starr dress was usually a simple but sculptural shift dress - often with elaborate beading or trims. The company also made day attire including dress and coat ensembles. By the end of the 1970s, they were also making separates. Starr was also a partner with Teal Traina in Gino Charles label. It is clear to see why Malcolm Starr's dresses are so sought after today. This one has a timeless glamour that will certainly make an impact.
