1971 Ossie Clark Couture Traffic Light Block-Color Tiered Crepe Plunge 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 iconic 'traffic light' moss-crepe dress in the colors of black, yellow, green and red is a perfect example of his talent. The bodice is a sexy low-cut plunge with ultra chic lean, long sleeves. I love the front button closures and flattering sculpted waist! The waterfall short to long swing skirt is so modern and easy-to-wear. 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:33-34 inches Waist:27 inches Hips:Free Sweep Sleeve Length:25 inches Total Front Length:46 inches Total Back Length:52 inches This vintage Ossie Clark Couture designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working original covered buttons. Only sign of age is minor fade to the right sleeve. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
