1972 Ossie Clark Red Moss-Crepe Celia Birtwell Floral Print Puff-Sleeve Dress

About

English fashion designer, Raymond Ossie Clark, was a leading light in the London "swinging sixties" fashion era and is now renowned for his romantic flowing dresses and dramatic ensembles. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. One of the best things about Ossie Clark pieces come from his collaboration with the great Celia Birtwell. She created all of his prints and the combination of her use of color and his use of cut was magical. This stunning red deco floral moss-crepe dress is a perfect example of his talent. The bodice is a seductive low-cut plunge with short sculpted puff-sleeves. I love the back sash-belt design with pleated swing skirt! Ossie Clark's designs, especially those made in Celia Birtwell's prints, are right in step with 21st-century style. His genius comes from his ability to borrow from the past but capture the spirit of the now, creating timeless designs with a strong sense of place. In Judith Watt's book, Ossie Clark: 1965-1974, Anna Sui explains, "He dressed the woman we all wanted to be: the rock star's girlfriend." So as long as there is rock, Clark's look is one that won't fall from style. Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Waist:29 inches Hips:Swing Sweep Total Length:42 inches This vintage Ossie Clark for Radley designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
