    Wow! it's a super auction. I'm going to have to look into shipping as I'd really love to bid on a couple of items. I think my absolute favourite is the 1940's green velvet gown with appliqué flowers.

    Anyone else think lot 386 sequin bustier on the left could be Gianni Versace Teatro range? It does not state the designer but looks like it comes from the 19991 collection. I'm thinking the one on the right might be Yves Saint Laurent...Edit: I was wrong about the designer, I emailed them and got a reply :) still beautiful!
