1973 Ossie Clark Couture Celia Birtwell Floral Print Tiered Silk Chiffon Dress

About

Breathtaking 1973 Ossie Clark Couture documented creation in the most gorgeous Celia Birtwell floral prints. 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. This colorful silk-chiffon and satin beauty is a perfect example of his talent. The garment is a flattering low-cut plunge empire tiered tea-length silhouette. I love the chic appliqued yoke and dramatic billow sleeves. 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:35-36 inches Waist:28 inches Hips:up to 40 inches Total Length:44 inches This Ossie Clark Couture documented designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips or holes. Garment closes with back covered buttons. Only signs of wear are slight underarm discolor and minor surface spots to the fabric which blend in with print. Please message for detailed pictures. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
