RARE Quorum Moss Crepe Celia Birtwell ? Print Ossie Clark / Alice Pollock 1960s do 1930sAbstract Fruit Print Tea Dress S


Beautiful Moss crepe , Apple print dress by Quorum - dating from the late 60s

Now this dress is a bit of an enigma. Im 80% sure its an Ossie Clark design dress from his time at Quorum with Celia Birtwell and Alice Pollock as it has all the classic Ossie details, But then it maybe a Pollock so either way its a win win!

Cream moss crepe midi length dress (more on that later) with an abstract fruit print in Green, Grey and Black

Pin tuck pleats down both front and back, and has Black crepe trim on neckline, sleeves, waist and on the side where it fasteneds with buttons and routard loops.

The hem has an extra panel. Now, this is whats confusing me as it looks likes its been added later as the join isnt overlocked, but i cant work out how? it looks like is should be there on the exterior, but inside you can see the unfinished seams - very strange. Maybe it was a maxi and was shortened?

The side where the buttons are have been sewn up at the top to stop it opening

The moss crepe has a few small pulls and a couple of small ladders , and the dress will need a dry clean as has a few marks (looks like someone has spilt a drink on themselves) but not overly obvious but is there

I would give this dress condition wise (apart from the seam) 7 out of ten

Bust 32 inch
Waist 28 inch
Hips - 37 inch
Length 44.5 inch
