1969 Ossie Clark for Quorum Plum Purple Ruched Silk Jersey Billow-Sleeve Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A captivating plum purple silk-jersey Quorum dress that is both timeless and chic. Founded by Alice Pollock and Ossie Clark, Quorum was one of the most popular London boutiques of the 1960's. This garment is so unique with its ruched sweetheart and button-trimmed shoulders. I also adore the billow-sleeves with pointed cuffs! The hourglass nipped-waist flows into the most flattering swing skirt. Ossie Clark’s designs 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.
