Quorum by Ossie Clark pleated jersey evening gown, circa 1965-68

About

Extremely rare and exquisite Ossie Clark for Quorum black jersey evening gown, circa 1965-68. The dress features a scoop neckline, heavily pleated bodice and full skirt, angel sleeves and hidden zip closure at the side seam. Alice Pollock founded the Quorum boutique in 1964. In 1965 Ossie Clark started working in the boutique as a designer and worked closely with Alice to create beautiful dress in supple and fluid moss crepe, satin and chiffon fabrics. Celia Birtwell (Ossie Clark's girlfriend at the time) designed all the textiles which were used by both designers at first until Ossie claimed exclusive use of her prints. Quorum closed in 1969.
