On September 16th, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers (1338 W. Lake St.; lesliehindman.com) kicks off its largest-ever vintage couture and accessories auction, featuring more than 700 lots of rare designer pieces. The big-ticket items? A covetable wardrobe selection from the late Eunice Johnson, cofounder of Ebony magazine, including the fashion icon’s sharp Mario Valentino faux leopard pony-hair coat. Some items will be offered in a tag-sale format, so attendees can take home something fabulous for a pittance. Previews are from September 11th to 15th.
