A Shout Out for Ossie Clark on T4

Hi everyone!! Hope you are enjoying your Sunday! I've been indulging in a bit of TV earlier and flicking through, I noticed on Channel 4 a program I hadn't watched before, called Frock Me on T4. I thought I'd check it out, as it promised some vintage goodies.
The show is hosted by the the hottest young people of the moment-Alexa Chung and Henry Holland, the designer. I was very excited to see an interview with Leah Wood, who had brought in a selection of her vintage wardrobe and of course, it included a lovely purple number by the master himself, Ossie Clark!!


Alexa getting to grip with the Ossie Clark


The Ossie Clark number is the purple one in the middle, next to it is Leah Woods gold sequin vintage number by Roberto Cavalli

Leah Wood, daughter of Rolling Stones Ronnie Wood and Jo Wood, whose attic is raided by Leah for her vintage pieces

Next up was a selection of Terry De Havilland vintage and new shoes-exquisite platforms that are still in style today


Then more Ossie!! Thanks Chris, for getting these pictures, any longer and I'd of missed them!!


They were advocating how Ossie Clark is the vintage master of the era. Also, if you are soo lucky to find one, be it by thrifting the charity shops or boot sales, then hang on to it for dear life, even if its too small-thanks Henry!!


This one is also an original Ossie Clark, with a Celia Birtwell print-maybe it was Alexas or Leahs!


I love a shout out for Ossie Clark, its great how young girls really appreciate the cut and style of his work and want to grab a piece of the action-check out Ebay if this has whetted your appetite!

I really don't understand the fuss about Henry Hollad. I think he's totally overrated.

That looks like such a great television programme! Gahh why don't we have cool things like that here.
Leah Wood has to be one of the luckiest girls alive. Daughter of a Rolling Stone AND amazing vintage collector?! I am so jealous haha.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi s-yes, a really lucky girl! Kate Moss's vintage collection is supposed to be awesomely huge!

fashion herald said...

the vintage ossie is amazing, and those platforms! I think we should all get a few minutes in Jo Wood's attic - now there's a show.

Hi fashion herald-ooh, it will be like a bunfight, LOL!!
