Ossie Clark

Raymond "Ossie" Clark (9 June 1942–6 August 1996) was an English fashion designer who was a major figure in the Swinging Sixties scene in London and the fashion industry in that era. As a result, Ossie is now extremely well renowned for his vintage designs, the contemporary fashion era being characterised by past influences and a retro feel to design.

Shockingly In 1996, 54 year old Ossie was stabbed to death in his council flat in Kensington and Chelsea, London, by his then 28 year old Italian former lover, Diego Cogolato who was convicted of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility and jailed for six years.
