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 early 1970's cream crepe maxi dress, from his iconic partnership with Radley, is a perfect example of his talent. The bodice is an alluring bow-tie yoke collar with dramatic billow-sleeves! The attached back belted nipped waist design finished this treasure off with the perfect femme fatale vibe. This would make such a chic bridal look for any modern wedding. 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.
