RARE's Most Beguiling Dress

Hello gorgeous! Here is a sexy and sweet Ossie Clark "Tarts" dress from early 1970s. The print was designed by Ossie's wife Celia Birtwell. Together they defined London fashion from the Sixties and Seventies.

Ossie Clark's 1966 graduation collection was featured in Vogue the same year that he also designed for Alice Pollack's boutique, Quorum. He also went on to design a more mass produced and a less expensive line for Radley.

This is a wrap-around dress in crepe, deep blue with little sprigs of flowers all over. The neckline plunges to a slighly raised waist and the skirt is very full with tiny pleats on either side. You will be ready for anything in this gown: it is a little rock and roll, a little elegant and a little tarty. Label reads, Ossie Clark, Celia Birtwell. Size 4/6. SOLD
