Ossie Clark came from a modest, diligent working-class family, an ordinary boy who went on to do extraordinary things. He was born in Liverpool and raised in the industrial Lancashire town of Warrington, famous for its factories and the birthplace of Lewis Carroll. The author never knew Ossie, but they attended the same technical school, Beamont. Seventeen years apart, both made their way to the enclave of Notting Hill in West London. Ossie found fame and fortune as the go-to fashion designer to the stars in the swinging 60s and psychedelic 70s. Once dubbed the King of the Kings Road, this is one of the most extraordinary stories of a man who had it all. It’s a classic tale of a rise from anonymity to the pinnacle of the fashion world, with the ultimate betrayal, told from the perspective of a fellow Northerner. The author has dramatized Ossie’s life with facts and informed imagination.
