About Catawiki's fashion auction
The history of fashion is, arguably, as old as human civilisation itself, with the first men and women fashioning garments to protect themselves from the elements and for social reasons. The modern fashion industry began in the 19th century, as Charles Frederick Worth became the first designer to have his label sewn into the garments he produced. Since then, labelled or “branded” clothes have become economically and socially important, with the most prestigious labels such as Gucci, Prada or Louis Vuitton, commanding prices far beyond their competitors. Fashion is, for many, an expression of identity and individuality. Collectors and fashion enthusiasts will pay a high price in order to acquire a sought-after object to add to their collection.
Catawiki’s fashion auctions include lots from brands such as Chanel and Hermes, and objects such as handbags, purses, dresses, shoes and glasses. Notable items to sell in the Catawiki fashion auctions include a Chanel bag for £1,122 and a Hermes Birkin Handbag for £3,207. Whether you have a highly sought after and iconic piece of fashion history, or a much-loved object from your personal wardrobe to sell, Catawiki’s fashion auctions are the perfect place to sell your special objects. Our expert auctioneers supervise our auctions, while our notary officials work to guarantee the validity of bids placed.
