Couture and Luxury Accessories


Hindman’s Couture and Luxury Accessories department specializes in vintage clothing, textiles and luxury accessories from the 18th century to today. Our auctions offer a compelling range of contemporary and vintage fashion, haute couture, luxury accessories, as well as museum-quality artifacts made centuries ago. Each auction presents a carefully curated selection of property from the US and Europe and often includes important and rare items from museums, collectors and estates.


Couture and Luxury Accessories accepts consignments of individual items, small collections or grand estates.

Our international buyers are regularly seeking ancient items, 19th century hand-crafted creations, vintage clothing and contemporary ready-to-wear from today’s top designers. We invite you to contact our Couture and Luxury Accessories department for a complimentary auction estimate.
