From antique embroidered fabrics to vintage rainbow weaves, this collection of materials is about to be presented at auction.
Fashion designers, interior decorators, and craft artisans will find a wide array of materials, many of which can not be duplicated. The pieces that are being presented during the Life, Style, & Fashion Auction taking place on October 28th have been acquired from around the world.
Sheets of silk, wools, and cottons, from the Traphagen collection had been carefully stored for decades and are being presented at auction with no reserve. The cost of textiles based on auction sales worldwide has increased dramatically over the past couple of years - much faster than the cost of inflation. The demand for unique natural fabrics and alternative prints and designs have contributed to the popularity of fabrics and textiles being presented at auction.
Part of the textile / fabric / clothing collection being presented is from The Traphagen School of Fashion. While FIT ( Fashion Institute of Technology, NY ) had acquired a portion of the collection, a large portion was acquired by a designer. The designer's love for exotic and rare materials led him to amass the outstanding collection we are now presenting at auction.
The collection also contains vintage clothing and traditional uniforms from Greece, Turkey, Switzerland, India, and Africa. A collection of shoes from The Traphagen Museum will be presented. There is also a large collection of books from The Traphagen Library on weaving, textile patterns, and architectural design.
