Vintage 1960s Hot Pink Silk Shantung Coat & Beaded Gown by Malcom Starr

I couldn't get the intensity of the pink in the photos. It really is hot, shocking pink. This evening set has a full-length double-breasted coat with beaded collar pink stain lining, big covered buttons, bound buttons holes and back 1/2 belt to snug it in. The matching gown is sleeveless, with an Empire waist, fitted torso and full length flared skirt. The entire bodice is beaded in 3-D bugle bead paisley shapes with glass beads and rhinestones accents.  The dress is fully lined as well. And has a handset back metal zipper. This is substantial set.

1970 Vintage Abstract Printed Silk Twill Dress by B.H. Wragge Sz S/M

I adore that Wragge actually dated their label. This 1970 dress is a marvelous , bold print in orange, yellow, aqua, rose and fuchsia. The style is simple - open shirt style collar, 3/4 flare sleeves and tent silhouette. This is beautifully made, with a silk lining, handset metal zipper and hand sewn hem. And side pockets, too! Wragge made good quality ready to wear for the younger American market. And did it well.
