The first exhibition in Italy dedicated to Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell tells the story of the two designers who represented a new creative class between art and fashion. A tale through clothes and images of one of the first examples of creative couples who worked together to complement each other in total harmony. Here we understand why Ossie’s shapes and cuts would not have had the same impact without Celia’s prints.
“Mr & Mrs Clarck. Ossie Clarck and Clelia Birtwell, Fashion and Prints 1965-74” explores the genius of Celia’s designs, which developed prints inspired by nature and the artistic avant-garde, and the talent of Ossie, whose mastery of cuts and modelling gave life to sensual and feminine clothes.
This unique exhibition features 30 iconic dresses from their heyday (1965-74), 7 precious notebooks by Ossie and Celia, numerous never-before-seen drawings, editorials shot by leading international photographers, as well as rare memorabilia, and videos with Ossie Clark’s incredible fashion performance-shoots.
