Since I sold my Ossie Clark for Radley maxi dress about three years ago-something I did regret, but as they say 'c'est la vie', I've been after a vintage original maxi and have never been able to find the perfect one-until now.
Scouring Ebay, I found this gorgeous black maxi floral dress by 70s designer John Bates, aka Jean Varon.
The floral print is just so similar to the prints produced by Celia Birtwell for Ossie Clark back in the day. The maxi dress is my perfect length and style and just what I've been wanting for such a long time:
I just adore the print, florals against a black background are a huge favourite of mine
I do have an Ossie Clark dress, but its not a maxi, so this really fulfills my longing for a designer 70s vintage dress
