Frequently Asked Questions

  • When is the best time to sell Maison Margiela designer clothing?
    The market for vintage designer fashion is stronger than ever, with international collectors driving prices to unmatched heights. Often, these women’s and men’s fashion collections have been hidden from the public eye for decades. Global collectors of vintage designer clothing look for fine craftsmanship that embodies an artist or period, characterised by exquisite materials, sophisticated detail and vibrant colours. Once you consign a designer gown, dress or other collectible haute couture fashion accessories, our specialists will suggest the optimal location to sell design fashion for the highest price.
  • Does Sotheby’s sell vintage fashion online?
    Absolutely. In October 2019, Sotheby's unveiled a collection dedicated to Martin Margiela, one of the most atypical couturiers of his generation. Margiela is one of the very few designers to have achieved a radical renewal in the world of contemporary fashion. Nearly 220 pieces curated in a single Sotheby’s sale revisited the most iconic creations of Margiela’s career. The sale, which fetched 341,750 EUR, offered ready-to-wear pieces as well as a wide selection of limited editions from the Martin Margiela Artisanal collection.
  • How can I authenticate my Maison Margiela designer fashion?
    Look for ready-to-wear as well as Artisanal collection pieces with Margiela’s refined white brand label that carries no logo. Inspect your clothing for quality craftsmanship. Because forgeries exist in the marketplace, request a complimentary auction estimate from Sotheby’s. Trust our experienced specialists to thoughtfully examine and appraise your women’s and men’s designer clothing to yield the highest price at auction.
