1970's Ossie Clark Traffic-Light Block Color Moss-Crepe 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 gowns and seductive pant-suits. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning traffic-light block color moss-crepe dress is a perfect example of his talent. The bodice is a seductive low-cut plunge with chic puff-sleeves. I love the matching novelty star buttons! 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. Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:up to 37 inches Total Length:42 inches This vintage Ossie Clark 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.
