Sotheby’s has invited leading British fashion accessories designer Anya Hindmarch to guest-curate an auction of contemporary art in London on September 20. A pre-sale exhibition of the works will be held at the Sotheby’s London galleries from September 16-19, coinciding with London Fashion Week.
Anya Hindmarch is a passionate advocate of British arts and design. She is a trustee of both the Design Museum and Royal Academy of Arts, and was awarded an MBE in 2009 in recognition of her contributions to the British fashion industry.
“I think what really drives a great art collector is passion, you’ve got to love it and the impulse has got to be authentic. I know when I see a beautiful piece or something that affects me I can’t not have it,” said Hindmarch in a statement.
