1974 Ossie Clark Colorful Celia Birtwell Print Cotton Low-Plunge Wrap 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. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning colorful deco-floral print dress from his 1974 spring/summer collection is a perfect example of his talent. The garment is a flattering wrap-around empire knee-length silhouette. I love the dangerous low-cut plunge bodice and long,lean 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:32-33 inches Waist:25 inches Hips:up to 36 inches Sleeve Length:23 inches Total Length:40 inches This vintage Ossie Clark designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. The print is very vibrant and fresh. This garment is over 40 years old and is truly stunning.
