This is the first book to focus on the work of Ossie Clark, a key figure in 1960s and 1970s London and one of the most important designers in British fashion. His golden era lasted from 1965 to 1974, when fashion, photography, art, music and the cult of the personality all flourished as never before in the glittering world of 'Swinging London'.
Drawing on interviews with Celia Birtwell, models and friends, and on exclusive audio archives featuring Ossie himself, Judith Watt brings to life the vibrant and artistic milieu in which his talent flourished. Juxtaposing sophisticated Vogue fashion shoots and photos of some of the famous names of the day - Jean Shrimpton, Twiggy, Verushka, Amanda Lear - with stunning new photography of iconic outfits and the wonderfully lively sketches produced by Ossie and Celia, the illustrations evoke a time when London was the epicentre of the fashion world and Ossie was one of its leading lights. Ossie Clark was much admired by his peers and his legacy can be seen today in the work of many major designers. This long-overdue celebration of his work will be welcomed by fashion-lovers and students alike and will re-establish him as a major force in recent fashion history.
