Gala Mitchell was a top model in the late sixties and early seventies. This flame-haired beauty was Ossie Clark's favorite model. Gala had sculptural bone structure, big eyes, theatrical style, and looked particularly good in leather jackets. She was a character in her own right, she danced, sashayed, and twirled up and down the catwalk. During the 1967 Chelsea Town Hall show, she got so into the music that she almost fell off the end of the runway.
