Note: 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. Clark is now renowned for his vintage designs by present-day designers. He was married to Celia Birtwell and there is a famous portrait of the couple, with their cat, in the Tate Gallery (Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy.) On 6 August 1996, 54-year-old Ossie Clark was stabbed to death in his council flat, in Kensington & Chelsea London, by his former lover, 28-year-old Italian Diego Cogolato

Mo McDermott was a close friend of Hockney, and is known for his whimsical wood cut-out sculptures of plants and animals.
