If you happen to be lucky enough to be in Chicago this weekend, you can catch an exclusive preview of the Ebony Fashion Fair collection up for auction next week. Assembled over the course of 50 years by Fashion Fair founder and director Eunice Johnson, the auction will feature iconic pieces by the industry’s top designers that were presented during the Ebony Fashion Fair runway shows. During its run, Ebony Fashion Fair raised more than $55 million dollars for various black charities  across the country. The preview opens on October 15 and runs through October 21, with the auction starting October 22 at 10am at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. To even be able to catch a glimpse of this amazing collection would be a treat, but the opportunity to be able to own a piece of history is beyond any fashion lover’s dream.
