Fancy owning a rare piece of fashion history? Well, now's your chance! From today, 250 pieces of avant garde fashion will go under the hammer at Christies. The collection ‘Ressurection: Avante garde fashion' is estimated to be worth over £250 million, and is regarded as the most highly anticipated to date. Compiled by fashion historians Mark Haddaway and Katy Rodriguez - they are both founders of the legendary Resurrection boutiques in New York and Los Angeles - the collection includes rare pieces from Pierre Cardin, Vivienne Westwood and the late Yves Saint Laurent. Its most expensive piece is a rare Paco Rabanne floor-length gown and matching bridesmaid dress, which was designed for a middle eastern bride but never worn. Other highlights include THAT black and gold safety pin dress designed by the late Gianni Versace for Elizabeth Hurley and a 1967 bomber jacket worn by Bridget Bardot . With the majority expected to go for over £10,000 each all we need now is a serious amount to cash to splash.... Any ideas?
