I am thrilled that the Ossie Clark label is going to be revived at last! I know the guy who held the rights to the name and he was trying to get something going for long time. But he wanted something high quality, and someone who would respect the label. None of the Topshop/H&M stuff. Looks like he found the right people!
Now I won’t be as aggravated to see Celia Birtwell, Ossie’s ex, knocking off his designs out of crap materal for Topshop. On the other hand, it kind of devalues my investment in my large collection of vintage Ossie, doesn’t it!
Here I am wearing an Ossie Clark halter dress (and a lot of double-stick tape) in 2003. That’s Gigi the dog lurking at my feet.
