About

An extremely rare and highly sought after Ossie Clark chiffon evening gown, circa 1968-69. The dress is from the high end Ossie Clark line and features beautiful screen printed hand drawn flowers, stars and patterns by Celia Birtwell. The dress has a huge amount of fabric (more than any Ossie Clark design we have owned before) which pleats and drapes from the drawstring closure on the yoke. The sleeves are balloon like and billow over the elasticated cuffs. We have honestly never seen this design before and it is believed only a very small amount were made, this is probably because of the expensive cost of producing a dress which required so much fabric. Who ever is lucky enough to be the next owner should be and confident and proud to know they are truly wearing a One of a Kind dress!

Size: UK 10 - This dress is very flexible with size as you can control the size with the drawstring, it would look fantastic on a XS, S, M, L and could even work as a maternity dress!
