Thom Browne Tapped To Curate Sotheby's "Visions of America" Auctions

The auction of fashion, furniture, art and more will take place in January.

Thom Browne has been selected by Sotheby’s to serve as the curatorial partner for its upcoming “Visions of America” auctions. The 10-auction event, which will begin with an exhibition running beginning January 12 to 20, is designed to pay homage to ​​”American craftsmanship and culture.”

Over 500 items will be auctioned off, with selections spanning paintings, furniture, decor, folk art, maps, whiskey, manuscripts and books. It’ll also present what may perhaps be Browne’s area of expertise: archival fashion.

The designer, who is the Chairman of the CFDA and described by Sotheby’s as a collector himself, has created an edit for the auction. Among the nine pieces are a pair of Chippendale mahogany chairs, a portrait of George Washington by Charles Willson Peale and a pair of Chinese plates from the Qing Dynasty.

Browne will also helm the fashion-specific portion of the auction, “Defining American Style.” Proceeds will go towards scholarships, mentorships and opportunities for designers through the CFDA.

Following the close of the “Visions of America” exhibition on January 20, sales will take place from January 20 to 29.
