Ossie Clark dressed the famous and fashionable of the swinging sixties in unabashed show stoppers. His evening wear was boldly seductive; his tailoring deliciously precise; and above all his clothes were unfailingly feminine. 

Working closely with his wife and muse, Celia Birtwell, who created his charming, colorful prints and textiles, Ossie Clark became known as a "master cutter" whose customers included Mick Jagger, Jimi Hendrix, Julie Christie Twiggy and Marianne Faithfull. In this talk, fashion historian Judith Watt examines the work of Ossie Clark, one of the most important designers in British fashion whose influence is still felt today.
