Celia Birtwell's prints "were just as appealing as Ossie's famous 'architectural' cutting." - Celia Birtwell
Indeed, the complement of Celia Birtwell's romantic bold florals and Ossie Clarke's beautifully biased cut chiffons, silks and crepes created a very alluring twist on the inspired classic dress shapes of the 1930's and 1940's and thus making them synonymous with 'Flower Power' of the late sixties and seventies.

For me, it is the Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell dresses that appeal and so I will just keep saving...
