Christie’s is the world's leading art business. Founded in 1766 by James Christie, Christie's has since conducted some of the most celebrated auctions throughout the centuries, and provided a popular showcase for the unique and the beautiful.
Christie’s Fashion department, introduced in 1975, has since secured Christie’s as one of the top destinations in the auction market. Collectors look to Christie's for couture, ready-to-wear and museum-quality pieces. The fashion department has worked with brands such as Hermès and Gucci and the collections of Daphne Guinness, Elizabeth Taylor, Anna Piaggi, Erin O’Connor and Marilyn Monroe.
