This is an exceptional piece from the late 1960s by the design house Gino Charles, which was founded in the 1960s by Teal Gino Traina and Malcolm Starr, both of whom had well established lines of their own. Teal Traina was designed by Geoffrey Beene from 1958 to 1963. Malcolm Starr produced a very popular line of evening dresses from the early 1960s through the 1970s. Pieces designed for the Gino Charles label were executed by master fabric craftsmen in Hong Kong, who were skilled in the fine embroidery of silk.
