1960s Ossie Clark Red Moss Crepe Gown

$600 USD $900 USD

One of the classic Ossie Clark wraps dresses in a killer tomato red moss crepe. This version has a pretty satin inset at the upper shoulders that gives it a nice bit of contrast. The front is classic, sexy Ossie with a double keyhole plunge. Note that this was a touch too small on my mannequin so those keyholes are gaping a little more then they will on the right size girl! The skirt is cut on the bias and flows to the floor in a beautiful sweep of red fabric. This one is not perfect so please read the notes below carefully, however it presents beautifully and is a smoking price for a classic and sexy Ossie Clark!

Unlined and wraps & ties to close with a single button at the front. This dress is flawed - upon close inspection there are color variations due to foxing. It primarily affects the upper back and sleeves and inside the collar. I had it professionally cleaned (of course) and it did lighten so may continue to get better with more cleanings, but may not. There are also some small scuffs and very occasional pills to the fabric here and there - consistent with moss crepe as it ages. Sold as fond and if perfect would be double or more so you are getting a smoking bargain! Completely wearable and presents well!
