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 ensembles. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning black moss-crepe gown, from his iconic partnership with Radley, is a perfect example of his talent. The bodice is a seductive tie key-hole plunge with dramatic billow-sleeves! I adore the embroidered red floral deco motif which frames the cut-out perfectly. The nipped-waist free flowing maxi skirt finishes this dress off with the perfect femme fatale vibe! 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.
