I dreamt for years of finding an Ossie Clark dress and I was so excited when I did that I could not run out of the shop fast enough! Of course I paid 1st though 😂 I was SOOOOOOOO EXCITED! That I had to share my incredible find with my mum straight away as I knew she'd "get it", she did shop in Biba after all!

Ossie Clark is an important designer for so many reasons. His designs still influence fashion designers today, they embody the 1960s & 1970s when he was at the peak of his career and they are just so damn cool! He is and will forever be one of my all time favourite vintage / designers as his clothes really, for the lack of a better more enthusiastic description, spark my imagination!

As with mainstream fashion there are different price points and levels and that is the same with vintage fashion. Ossie Clark is truly a collectors brand, I am sure this is why your here, his pieces don't just hold their value they tend to increase year on year. I personally think he is a great investment piece if your looking to take your vintage clothing collection to the next level and leave something to pass down the family. I really can not tell you how much I truly love his designs!

As always thank you so much for watching & reading, if you have any questions please feel free to ask me anything. I would also be happy to authenticate an vintage item for you.

Have a great day Rachael X
