We have always been trailblazers in the world of fashion auctions: we were the first to auction designs by Westwood, Galliano, Chalayan, van Noten, van Herpen and the leading Japanese designers of the 80s and 90s. Throughout the year, our sales encompass both the more mainstream, wearable items, as well as outstanding show-pieces.
Our sales archive shows why we are the leaders in our field, with contemporary fashion consistently reaching record prices in our saleroom. A rare Issey Miyake raspberry-pink moulded plastic breastplate/bodice, Autumn-Winter 1980, sold for £38,000 in 2014 and since then, we have sold one in almost every colour! In 2019, a rare pair of ‘Armadillo’ boots by Alexander McQueen, ‘Plato’s Atlantis’ collection, Spring-Summer 2010, achieved a staggering £60,000 and that same year, a complete ensemble from John Galliano’s 'Afghanistan Repudiates Western Ideals' collection, Spring-Summer 1985, sold for £70,000.
