Ossie Clark Celia Birtwell couture silk chiffon screen-print dress, circa 1976


Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell silk chiffon evening dress, couture line, circa 1976. Drawstring fastenings at neck and cuffs with ruffled trim, semi-sheer yoke, two pleated panels around the bust and full skirt with silk lining. The dress is constructed in a vibrant green silk chiffon screen-printed using paint, at this time Celia's design became more abstract and graphic, and a major influence on her was the pointillist painter Georges Seurat... they reflected fashion's move away from romanticism and floral patterns. A very special dress which is a true testament to Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell's artistry.
