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 dresses and blouses. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning white organdy blouse was featured in the March 1968 issue of Vogue, photographed by David Bailey and modeled by Shirley Swain. The four page article entitled 'The Wizard of Ossie', describes it as a blouse for angels, waves of organza rising from a deep neckline, over the shoulders to cascade down the sleeves. The garment is a flattering wrap-around with seductive low-cut plunge. 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.
