A simply stunning buttercream crepe Ossie Clark for Radley gown dating back to the mid 1970's. English fashion designer, Raymond Ossie Clark, was a leading light in the London late "swinging sixties" fashion era and is now renowned for his romantic flowing dresses. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning buttercream colored crepe gown is a perfect example of his talent. The garment has an ultra flattering low plunge built-in sash waist. I love the chic nehru collar and wide bell-sleeves. 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. This would be a fantastic summer look or divine bridal moment.
