Fashion grants a special insight in other cultures.
Imee Barten loves fashion. She also loves traveling, especially to Asia. When she realised these two passions could be combined, she built her own business around it. Imee would travel to Asia, visit remote villages and bring back unique kinds of ethnic and folkloristic clothing, art and jewellery. Internet was on the rise back then and as one of the first online sellers, her business became a great success. She started selling vintage fashion as well, noticing the inspiration that designers sometimes got from ancient tribal patterns and clothing. Through experience, Imee Barten has become a true expert on fashion: ethnic, vintage and modern. With a keen eye for fabrics and cut, she’s quick to recognise every brand’s signature style. Imee has a soft spot for vintage clothing and accessories from Chanel, Hermès and Louis Vuitton. From her online sales experience, Imee knows exactly how to present her lots and appraise them from photographs. This enables her to ensure quality auctions, presenting bidders with unique fashion items they’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
