1970’s Ossie Clark Blue Chiffon Floral Dress With Ceila Birtwell Print

About

A stunning floaty summer dress from iconic British designer Ossie Clark. This classic 1970’s piece features a pretty floral print on layers of navy chiffon. The print is by his wife and business partner Ceila Birtwell. Fitted around the bust with a flattering empire line skirt it fastens at the back with three covered buttons in the same fabric. It would make a fantastic choice for a wedding or summer party and is in excellent condition. Best for size extra small - small. Ossie Clark was a highly influential British fashion designer in the 1960s. In 1965 he graduated from the Royal College of Art with a first class degree and immediately began selling his work in exclusive London boutiques including Alice Pollock’s Quorum. Here he created a collection with textile designer and soon to be mother of his children Celia Birtwell, one of the most famous collaborations in fashion history. Quorum was bought by Radley in the late 1960s which led to the ‘Ossie Clark for Radley’ label. Today, his distinctive dresses are highly sought after and admired by celebrities such as Kate Moss.
