As you can see, it is in a typical early 80s style-so Dallas meets Dynasty-some of you aren't old enough to have watched this first time round!! But what I love about it is the deep colouring, the fluidity, the draping, the quality and the price-haha!!

Ossie Clark-Late 70s-Early 80s
A late 70s-early 80s Ossie Clark
2 piece which recently sold at Kerry Taylor Auctions
As you all know, I'm an avid Ossie Clark fan. The majority of his pieces are from mid sixties to mid seventies and are either his own label, Ossie Clark or that of his collaberation with Al Radley, Ossie Clark for Radley. There are very few pieces around now that are from his own label, Ossie Clark Ltd, which ran from 1977 to 1981.
I was successful enough to win on EBay this gorgeous 2 piece, which is in a draping Grecian style, and has a low cut cowl front and back, silver sequin and beading shoulder details and a 5 panel tulip style skirt, in a flowy turquoise blue silk type jersey. It was a buy it now price of £44.99, which is quite a find-I was very lucky indeed!!
This early 80s Ossie Clark navy blue draped style 2 piece is available through CircaVintage.com for £580
