This is an exquisite Elinor Simmons for Malcolm Starr yellow beaded chiffon gown. Malcolm Starr gowns had always been carried in only upscale boutiques and department stores and this one had been purchased at Patricia Feeney's in Ridgewood, New Jersey, sometime in the early 1960's.
The gown is simple in design and impeccably and masterfully constructed. The bodice is elaborately decorated with beads and sequins and has a back zipper for closure. It is equivalent to a modern day Size 8 and is in excellent vintage condition.
