Viewed: Ebony Fashion Fair Auction

On October 22, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will hold an auction of select pieces of the historic couture and clothing collection from the Ebony Fashion Fair show. This collection was assembled over the course of fifty years by Eunice W. Johnson. Each item from the Ebony Fashion Fair Show, the world’s largest traveling fashion show, which raised more than $55 million for black charitable causes, was hand selected by Mrs. Johnson. Mrs. Johnson traveled to the world’s fashion capitals to find the most avant-garde designs to bring high fashion to black American women throughout the country.

The 707 lot auction includes items from Chanel, Dior, Halston, Bill Blass, Givenchy, Valentino, Vivienne Westwood and countless others. A capsule collection from Eunice Johnson’s personal archive will also be offered for sale. A tag sale will be held online at, from September 30- October 14, and at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago which will give buyers the opportunity to own a piece of the historic collection in keeping with Mrs. Johnson’s vision that high style belonged in the everyday lives of all women.

Here are some of my favorite picks from the collection:
Anna Sui

Carolina Herrara

Fusha (Haitian Design)

Mio Collection



Nina Ricci
