"It's the big whirl of fashion!"

Antthony Mark Hankins
That's a quote from Eunice Johnson, founder of Ebony magazine.  In the wake of the New York, Paris and Milan fashion weeks, I was flipping through a few auction catalogs this weekend that I had shoved aside for later.  I saw that Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will be auctioning vintage pieces from the Ebony Fashion Fair Collection on October 22nd.   So many wonderful pieces!  Here are just a few of my favorites.  

Bill Blass
Carolina Herrera

"Fashion, like vintage wine, has its good years."

"If you don't feel good in it, it's not for you."
-Eunice Johnson
Oscar de la Renta
Vivienne Westwood
The Ebony Fashion Fair goes way back to 1958.  Flipping through the auction catalog you really get a sense of the power of fashion through the years!  Check it out yourself  . . . and maybe throw in your bid!
