OSSIE CLARKE

Raymond “Ossie” Clark (9 June 1942 – 6 August 1996)

“From the mid-1960s to the late-1970s Ossie Clark dressed the famous and fashionable in unabashed show-stoppers. His most productive period coincided with London’s most magical, optimistic, rule-breaking decade. It was a decade in which fashion, photography, music and the cult of personality converged. Ossie Clark was first recognised as a design talent at the age of 23 when British Vogue singled him out in their August 1965 issue. Throughout the next decade his designs represented the best of London fashion. Since then, however, Clark’s glamorous lifestyle and tragic death in 1996 have overshadowed his importance as a designer. This display is a reminder of his singular talent. It shows his facility with diverse materials, his impressive cutting skills and the extraordinarily productive collaboration between Clark and his wife, the textile designer Celia Birtwell.” (Taken from Ossie Clarke Exhibition V&A 2003/4)

This earlier (original) version of the Jumpsuit in burned orange crepe, was  designed by Ossie especially for Pattie Boyd in the late 60’s. Ten years later he revived the design in an easy to wear jersey, narrowing the width of the legs & sleeves.
