1970's Ossie Clark Black & Yellow Polka-Dot Moss Crepe Halter Plunge Maxi Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

English fashion designer, Raymond Ossie Clark, was a leading light in the London "swinging sixties" fashion era and is now renowned for his seductive flowing gowns. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning moss-crepe maxi dress is a perfect example of his talent. The garment is a flattering hourglass halter-neck silhouette. I love the dangerous low-cut plunge and polka-dot print bodice. He finishes the garment off with a seductive high middle-slit. 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.
