To describe this auctioneer is to best let their words be shared. In the words of the auctioneer “Being a high fashion model I have graced the covers of Vogue, Mademoiselle, and Elle, among other fashion venues. I have traveled the world doing runway shows from the most famous Couturier and designers from the age of 16 being discovered by Charles Revson of Revlon. I have bought many treasures through the years of my work in modeling. And since vintage is my passion , I have made connections with big houses of fashion and private auction entities. I love the Hollywood Regency Era, the Roaring 20s as well as the Edwardian and Victorian eras. The 40,50,60s, through today are also fascinating. I am presenting some of the unique items that I own and will add more to each auction. Many are Haute Couture, most are French from the biggest Couturiers to today’s talents. Indulge! “
