Antique and Vintage Fashion and Textiles
Our early Autumn auction features vintage and antique fashion and accessories, including an Hermès purple toga leather Birkin. Amongst the wide ranging fashion from the 18th to 20th centuries, we include the Lorraine Harper Biba collection (lots 142 to 166). Lorraine Harper began working for Biba in November 1970 and continued to do so until it closed in 1975. Lots 326 to 349 comprises part I of the eclectic and fun wardrobe of Hannelore Smart (wife of the late circus impresario). We also have part II of our Central Asian and Islamic costume and textiles single-owner collection and the final part of the Pat Earnshaw lace collection (lots 396 to 425).
