The famous jumpsuits Mick Jagger wore throughout the 70's were designed by Ossie Clark. Ossie first made clothes for Mick in 1968. Marianne Faithfull, brought Mick into Quorum. They made Mick a jumpsuit in leather, which Ossie had to put him in because it was so complicated, with ties and laces. For the 1972 tour he made a blue all-in-one suit, stapled with hundreds of silver circles so they glittered on stage. Clark had to make four or five for each tour because they didn't last long. Ossie also made Jagger jackets with embellished sleeeves, with the help of Spanish seamstresses.
