Ebony Fashion Fair Auction features some outstanding fashion rarities

I can’t believe my eyes as I scroll through this catalogue for Ebony Fashion Fair archives which is coming up for auction at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago! We’re used to seeing great pieces but what we’re not used to seeing are designer names like Valentino, Herve Leger, Vivienne Westwood and Christian Dior with $100-$200 marked beside them! Should this auction go unnoticed by the masses (which of course now it won’t), you could really grab some amazing bargains! 

I won’t ruin the experience of sifting through the catalogue for you. This is one you really have to experience yourself. Just make sure you close the office door as there will be a lot of squealing involved as your discover some true gems! There are two sales taking place with nearly 8,000 items available to purchase!

Of course we must mention that the entire collection is the result of one woman’s extreme collecting habits! Ms. Eunice Johnson ran Ebony Fashion Fair for over 50 years and managed to raise over $55 million for black charities during her lifetime. This collection is a testament to her phenomenal style and natural ability to discover new talent!
