Ahead of the sale Christie’s collaborated with Alexandra O’Neill, designer of the ready-to-wear line Markarian, and CeCe Barfield Thompson principal of the interior design firm CeCe Barfield, Inc. The guest auction tastemakers created capsule collections of dresses and homeware inspired by the objects in the auction and sold exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman in New York. The tastemakers also selected objects from the sale to create a series of vignettes and co-hosted Christie’s Lates with Bergdorf Goodman on Monday, August 19, which was free and open to the public and welcomed approximately 400 guests into the galleries.
