In January, a collection of late Vogue editor André Leon Talley’s belongings was auctioned off at Christie’s, with proceeds benefiting two historic Black Baptist churches that he attended during his lifetime, the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York, and the Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church in Durham, North Carolina.

A second auction of Talley’s items is now set to take place in Hudson, New York, this September, WWD reported first. The in-person event, which will once again benefit the two churches, will be hosted by Stair Galleries and is expected to encompass a catalog of approximately 300 lots.

Talley had a lengthy career at Vogue, joining the publication as its fashion news director in 1983. He went on to become the magazine’s first Black male creative director and later served as its editor-at-large until 2013. The fashion pioneer passed away last year at the age of 73 due to COVID-related complications.

Muffie Cunningham, the director of decorative arts for Stair, sourced items from Talley’s homes in White Plains, New York and his hometown of Durham.

Among the items being auctioned are a Chado Ralph Rucci black kimono designed for Talley to wear at the Met Gala, a Todd Oldham patchwork robe, Fendi furs and multiple pairs of Manolo Blahnik crocodile shoes, according to WWD.

Also in the mix will be sunglasses, books and a select few pieces of furniture. The event is expected to generate upwards of $500,000 USD, per WWD.

Stair Galleries’ auction of Talley’s belongings will debut on September 8 ahead of officially opening on September 21.
