Off the Runway...
Ossie Clark's fashion shows were more of a "spring dance than show", proclaimed Vogue. In 1968, the Beatles were in the audience at Ossie's show to support George's wife Pattie.Pattie Boyd was a star of Ossie Clark's first show at Chelsea Town Hall in 1971, when the girls - including Marianne Faithfull and Amanda Lear - danced on the catwalk (in Manolo Blahnik's first-ever shoes). Pattie said: "One of my outfits, was a long, strapless chiffon gown that barely covered my nipples - I was terrified they might pop out and cause a row with George." It's a moment that has gone down in fashion history as one of the most important shows ever.
