September brings two wonderful vintage clothing and textile auctions. First up will be Leslie Hindman's Vintage Couture and Accessories Auction on Wednesday, September 2 at 3PM at Hindman's gallery at 1338 West Lake Street, Chicago, IL. The catalogue is online and it's a gorgeous assortment of fashion. As usual at this house, the selection is heavy with mid century and later designer labels, but this time there are quite a few selections from the 1920s and 1930s.
From Leslie Hindman Online Catalogue: A French Couture Woven Silk Dress, probably 1920s, in a floral motif, in a straight fit with panels of fabric at front and back creating an asymmetric hemline, bow at back.
For those of you lucky enough to be on the East Coast, Karen Augusta of Augusta Auctions will hold her second auction September 10 in Sturbridge, MA at the Host Hotel, Sturbridge. The sale will coincide with Brimfield Antique Week. The selection will be wide, from 18th century gowns and shoes to 20th Century designers such as Claire McCardell and Norman Norell. This catalogue is also available on line and photo galleries are being added daily.
