Sensational Ossie Clark 'Candy Flower' print documented dress dating back to his 1969 collection. English fashion designer, Raymond Ossie Clark, was a leading light in the London "swinging sixties" fashion era and is now renowned for his romantic dresses and seductive ensembles. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning moss-crepe dress is a perfect example of his talent. The garment is a flattering button-down tea length silhouette which can easily turn into an extremely chic jacket. I love the over-sized pointy collar and dramatic billow-sleeves. Ossie Clark’s designs, especially those made in Celia Birtwell’s prints, 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.
