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 roses print moss crepe blouse with matching bias-cut maxi skirt is a perfect example of his talent. The low cut button-down blouse has gorgeous puff-sleeves and flattering back sash-tie. I love the silhouette which is a wonderful nod to 1930's design. The matching high-waist hourglass skirt finishes this ensemble 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.
