Saucy Ossie

Ossie Clark is probably the most knocked-off designer in the history of fashion. His designs look simple and effortless, but his attention to detail and ingenuity are unparalleled. He was well known for using moss crepe fabric and prints created by his wife Celia Birtwell. This dress is not a Birtwell print, but it does have some amazing black satin detailing around the neck and the key-hole down the front. The classic 60's baby-doll shape and gathered princess sleeve make this little black number chic and sexy. Check out the video above to see Ossie in action on the streets of London. Side note- the dress has been shortened from it's original length
