On this day in 1942 one of the most important men in fashion came into this world...

Ossie Clark became one of the most influential British fashion designers in Britain, ever. Today we remember the great work of this talented dressmaker with three pieces from our archive. Happy Birthday Ossie!

1) This is the catalogue from the Ossie Clark Retrospective curated by Celia Birtwell and Cherry Gray in 1999 at the Warrington Museum and Art Gallery where he was born.

2) A collection of fashion drawings to colour in from Ossie Clark's sketchbooks. Victoria & Albert Museum, London

3) The Ossie Clark Diaries is one of the most beautiful diaries we've ever seen - a work of art in itself. One of our most treasured books!
