Why not giving it a new story?
Featuring me in my vintage piece, sustainable and chic. The Ossie Clark dress designed in the 70s.
The story behind it
I got it from a dear friend who never worn it. Apparently, she had too many tailored black dresses! This is my precious vintage piece. It’s unique.
This is precious to me, a vintage piece with a story. It’s unique, also with a sustainable mindset, not to mention chic.
This dress came out around the year of my birthday, 1973. This is why I chose to pick this style among all the others she had it in her wardrobe. She would tell me these stories of the fantastic days in the 60’s and 70’s which was always inspiring.
Ossie Clark pioneered in the ready-to-wear in the London fashion week at the time. Ossie dressed famous celebrities, Elizabeth Taylor among others. He loved to use sensuous fabrics like jersey and chiffon. It was chic and also exquisite. He also had romantic motifs like the collection presenting some of his then-wife Celia Birtwell, the floral dresses. These are always on my mind. It swings my mind to the late sixties and early seventies.
Fortunately, this vintage little black dress made in England and designed by Raymond Clark (well-known as Ossie Clark) fits my essence of fashion perfectly. For a happy end, I just need an occasion to wear it.
