Fashion is ever-changing but it's easy to forget the centuries of history in clothing which has brought materials, styles and methods of production to where they are today.
Clothing and textiles express our unique style and personality. They reveal not only the history of how they were made but give a visual glimpse of the everyday lives of our ancestors. They may also hold sentimental value based on who owned the item, or perhaps they were worn for meaningful occasions in people’s lives.
In addition to their rich history, vintage clothing and textiles can be given a second life and a chance to make new memories. Showcasing items at our specialist auctions, we provide tailor-made opportunities to find the perfect piece for your wardrobe.
Hansons' vintage clothing and textiles department is led by television personality Notty Hornblower and showcases all manner of vintage fashion.
From Queen Victoria’s bloomers and Edwardian corsetry to flapper dresses of the 1920s, vintage furs, 1970s platform shoes and 1980s power dresses, the vintage clothing and textiles department is hugely diverse.
The market for vintage fashion and accessories has gone from strength to strength with a focus on big-name designers such as Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Hermes and Armani. Designer handbags are also making record prices at our auctions.
