A rare summer evening dress in moss crepe from the Quorum boutique. Halter-neck design with bow fastening, open back with two diagonal straps attached to the collar and 'The medium is the message print' designed by Celia Birtwell.
Alice Pollock founded the Quorum boutique in 1964. In 1965 Ossie Clark started working in the boutique as a designer and worked closely with Alice to create beautiful dress in supple and fluid moss crepe, satin and chiffon fabrics. Celia Birtwell (Ossie Clarks girlfriend at the time) designed all the textiles which were used by both designers at first until Ossie claimed exclusive use of her prints. Quorum closed in 1969.
