This week two Alexander McQueen dresses from his “Salem Witch” Collection of Autumn 2007 were brought up for auction at Bonham’s auction house in London (incidentally situated right across the street from Harrod’s which has sold and is still selling McQueen). The two dresses were both estimated at above £10,000 and neither found an owner. The same auction catalogue also featured items from the old Biba Store off High Street Ken. Remarkably, only half of those lots were sold! Was the fashion set out of town or does Bonham’s just need to find a new PR person? I didn’t even know this sale was going on. I would have certainly attended to grab some old Biba items! What a shame!
