1970 Ossie Clark designed this coat. He was one of Britain's most influential fashion designers in the 1960s and 1970s. Clark used fabrics designed by his wife, the textile designer Celia Birtwell. For this coat Clark chose 'Floating Daisy', one of Birtwell's best-known textiles. A complementary grid pattern flatters the collar, cuffs and bodice. The coat's trim shape demonstrates Clark's skill at accentuating the female form.
