Retrospective - a vintage fashion runway show with a futuristic edge by Ingela Klemetz Farago for Stockholms Auktionsverk auction house

In August 2016, Stockholms Auktionsverk (the world’s oldest auction house, founded in 1674) presented the world’s first fashion runway show for an auction house, featuring vintage pieces from the world’s leading fashion houses to be sold at the fall Fashion! auction. The show attracted international attention.




Retrospective - Stockholms Auktionsverk x Ingela Klemetz Farago

When the auction house returns for the third time to Stockholm’s fall fashion week, Stockholms Auktionsverk has commissioned star stylist and designer Ingela Klemetz Farago to create her own personal contemporary fashion vision from pieces dating back from the 1970s to the present day from houses such as Dior, Chanel, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Gucci, Hermès, Céline, Prada, Valentino and many others.

“I’m thrilled about this challenge since I’ve been a freak for vintage fashion from as long as I can remember”, says Ingela Klemetz Farago. “Combining new and vintage pieces and accessories from different times has always been the very key to fashion for me. With this show, I want to present a view that is classically elegant with a rawer, somewhat futuristic edge - a look that goes with the music concept which can be called cyber French elegance.”

Founded in 2009, Stockholms Auktionsverk:s auction Fashion! has pioneered the market, expanding steadily season by season to feature over 900 objects of fashion and accessories from the world’s leading fashion houses, predominantly superior condition pieces from the most recent seasons, with selected historic highlights.

“The runway shows have been effective and exciting vehicles for us to communicate our auction to a wider audience and to inspire fashion lovers with new ideas for styling and combining the pieces”, says Beata af Donner, fashion expert at Stockholms Auktionsverk and founder of the Fashion! auction.

“We are very happy to see that the interest in vintage fashion in general and in our auction in particular keeps growing steadily”, adds af Donner. “More people are discovering how incredibly much fashion you can get for your money when buying at auction. Of course increasing sustainability awareness also adds to the growing interest. Vintage fashion has always been all about sustainability.”
