It’s no secret that style trends are largely influenced by popular icons of the day, such as movie actresses, singers, and even political icons. Designers take advantage of these fashions and recreate pieces seen on celebrities. Many of today’s most prominent fashion trendsetters are turning to vintage-inspired fashion for formal occasions and everyday looks alike. These fashion icons set the tone for what will be popular for the next few seasons, and even years.

Clark is compared to the 1960s fashion greats Mary Quant and Biba and influenced many other designers, including Yves Saint Laurent, Anna Sui and Tom Ford. Manolo Blahnik has said of Ossie Clark's work: "He created an incredible magic with the body and achieved what fashion should do — produce desire." Ossie Clark and Ossie Clark for Radley clothes are highly sought after, and are worn by well known models like Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.
The first full Ossie Clark collection was bought by the Henri Bendel department store in New York. This was the first export of a talented young British designer's work. His simple, elegant dresses were widely copied by the designers on Seventh Avenue. I wonder if you can find one the original pieces in a vintage fashion boutique.
