Kerry Taylor Auctions is the leading specialist auction house for antique, vintage fashion and textiles. Our auctions include rare antique garments right through to street style by designers such as Emillio Pucci, Ossie Clark, Andre Courreges, Pierre Cardin and Vivienne Westwood to sublime Couture confections by Dior, Chanel and Vionnet. Accessories sold include shoes, gloves, hats, fans, handbags and costume jewellery. The textiles included are wide ranging including lace, linens, quilts, embroidered pictures from the 17th to the 19th century centuries, embroidered samplers, Paisley, Kashmir and Norwich shawls, Oriental and European textiles and fabric swatch books. We also auction antique fashion plates, photographs and literature. Kerry Taylor joined Sotheby's in 1979, and became one of the youngest auctioneers in the company's history at the age of 21. At Sotheby's New Bond Street she re-established costume and textile sales and became Director in charge of all Collectors areas, special theme sales and celebrity sales. During her time there she handled a number of important collections including the Duke & Duchess of Windsor collection, the Castle Howard Ballets Russes collection as well as the celebrity wardrobes of Ava Gardner, Geri Halliwell and Robbie Williams. Kerry left in 2003 to set up her own auction business - Kerry Taylor Auctions, specializing in the fields she loves - costume and textiles. She also continues to act as textile consultant to Sotheby's, advising their international network of offices and regularly assists major museums with valuations, applications for funding and sits on the UK Government's Export Review board. Kerry regularly contributes to television programmes, and is frequently consulted by the press for her expert knowledge of vintage fashion. In 2007 the Guardian voted her one of their 'women of the year'. Kerry has been profiled in British Vogue and the New York Times.
