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 gowns. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning green silk-rayon print dress is a perfect example of his talent. The garment is a flattering low-cut plunge hourglass maxi-length silhouette. I love the dramatic flutter-sleeves and pleated backside. 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.
