Alexander McQueen Dresses to be Auctioned at Bonhams
Two Alexander McQueen dresses are to be auctioned off at Bonhams, Knightsbridge on June 30, as part of the Vision 21 sale. The dresses, some of the first to be auctioned off since McQueen's death in February, are from the designer's ready-to-wear collection for autumn/winter 2007. This particular collection was inspired by the Salem Witch trials of 1692—an event one of McQueen's ancestors was tragically involved in, being burnt at the stake. These two dresses, each one of a kind, are expected to be sold for £30,000.
