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 indigo blue-purple colored moss-crepe glamour gown is a perfect example of his talent. The bodice is a sexy button-down plunge with dramatic billow-sleeves. I love the hourglass nipped waist and gathered backside! The chic maxi-length silhouette 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.
