This includes a good selection of designer fashion including; two lots that include hats by Christian Dior, a Jean Varon 60s wedding dress with accessories, estimated at £60-80; a linen 80s shirt dress by Pallant of London estimated at £60-80 and a Mary Quant mini dress for an affordable £30-50.
A particularly interesting lot is a 1920s black beaded flapper dress from Debenhams (then called Debenhams & Freebody), which due to its condition is only estimated at £30-50. Out of the handmade items three 1940s crepe dresses are the highlight with an estimate of £50-70.
This auction will also include a wide selection of menswear, vintage and more modern. The highlight of which is a lot of two Cambrian Factory 70s Tweed jackets with vintage trousers, and two pairs of vintage shoes by Grensons estimated at £60-80.
