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.

'The Ossie Clark we really want to know has at last been put back in the spotlight to shine' Dazed and Confused 'A wonderful reminder of a neglected genius' Daily Express 'A fascinating book containing basically all you need to know about the glory years' Nude Judith Watt is a fashion historian who combines teaching at Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design with writing and research.

    Had to have it because i am an Ossie Clark nut, but not impressed, especially with the photos.

    Very informative, if a bit gushing. Basically just a history of Ozzie, and a little bit about the clothes. Nice slick paper, and some nice photos, but I wish it had more. Considering this was accompaning a retrospective of his work at the V&A Museum, I was expecting more pictures of his work, more drawings, and maybe some schematics of the actual designs. What you actually get is a few photos of his clothes on manequins, a few photos from magazine shoots (which never really show the clothes well) and a few photos of Ozzie through the years. There are a few drawings of his and a few of Celia's, and that's it. It just makes you hungry for more, but there isn't any more. This is the only book available.

    A marvellous book for any and all who revere 60s-70s fashion.You've seen the copycat versions for years; now see an original designer who tied rock and underground culture to clothing.The subtly body conscious cut, the wonderful prints, these clothes have it all.Expensive, but your fashion library deserves it.My only criticism? Too too short!
