And I thought everything had been sold the first time round! Lisa Ho (Australian fashion designer) must surely have had one of the best private collections of 1920s and 30s gowns that I have ever see in one place. Most of the gowns this time round sold in lots for very reasonable prices. In some cases, $250 for five 1930s tea-gowns! Oh how I wish I could have been there, but sadly, I’m quite sure I would be broke for the rest of my life, as I would have wanted to bring all the 30s gowns home. Here is just a small look at what was on offer, which was literally hundreds of garments from the 1900s to modern, but her 20s to 40s collection was quite substantial. Enjoy!
Back in August this year, Lisa Ho (a prominent Australian fashion designer) auctioned off her HUGE vintage clothing collection, which consisted of 100s of garments predominantly from the 1920s and 30s. Racks and racks of carefully organised items were for sale along with some of the most beautiful 20s beaded dresses I have even seen! I am happy to say that two of my favourite fellow bloggers in the Aussie vintage scene were there to bid for (and win) some of these beauties.
I have included just a small selection of what is featured in the online catalogue. You can find the rest here at Mossgreen Auctions. My favourites are the yellow dress (snapped up by my Sydney friend Inger), both the pink and the black coats in the second line of pics, the 30s red gown and the bias cut white 30s dress. All just stunning! I wish I could have been there to go through all though racks of 30s silk gowns.
