The Fashion Institute of Technology is cleaning out its closet and trimming its collection of 50,000 pieces of clothing and accessories with an auction. The Charles A. Whitaker Auction Company will conduct the auction Friday and Saturday, October 28 and 29 in New Hope, Pennsylvania. You must register to bid by phone. Pictured on the left is lot #535, a young man’s French jeweled court suit from around 1790. On the right is Lot #605, a chiffon dress with metallic lace and sequins from the Roaring Twenties. You could lose yourself just perusing the lovely items to be sold. See the auction catalog here. -via Nag on the Lake
