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 pant-suits. Ossie Clark vintage clothing is rare, unique and highly collectible. This stunning black moss-crepe glamour gown, dating back to the mid 1970's, is a perfect example of his talent. The bodice is a flattering satin trimmed, collared key-hole with ruffle flutter-sleeves and a back belted tie-waist. The wrap-around style is so modern and easy-to-wear. 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.
