Leslie Hindman Auctioneers to auction Estate of Betsy Pickering Kaiser
Over the years, Betsy made significant donations from her Galanos collection to a number of museums, in particular, The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
CHICAGO, IL.- On September 11, 2013 Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will sell clothing and accessories from the Estate of Betsy Pickering Kaiser. Betsy Pickering Kaiser, friend and muse to the American fashion designer James Galanos, was one of the most successful models of the 1950s and early 1960s. The auction will include 380 lots of suits, coats, gowns and accessories that she collected throughout her lifetime. Betsy died on February 22, 2013.

While most of the clothing presented in the auction was designed by Galanos, the sale also includes items by Chanel, Bottega Veneta, Fendi, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Salvatore Ferragamo and others. In conjunction with the preview for the auction, there will be a tag sale held from September 6 through September 8 at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago. The tag sale will feature clothing and accessories that Betsy purchased at Trillion, a high-end boutique in Palm Beach. Also offered in the tag sale are 174 bolts of fine vintage fabrics, including rare examples by Abraham and Gandini, which she purchased from Galanos in the late 1990s. Throughout her career, Betsy appeared on the cover of important magazine publications including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Mademoiselle, Charm, Town & Country and GQ. She was inducted into the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1971. Her listing in the Hall of Fame reads: Mrs. Michael Kaiser (Betsy), socialite, Galanos muse, former model.

Over the years, Betsy made significant donations from her Galanos collection to a number of museums, in particular, The Metropolitan Museum of Art. In accordance with her wishes, the proceeds from the auction will benefit LoveLife, the largest HIV/AIDS prevention, education and awareness organization in South Africa. Leslie Hindman Auctioneers’ auctions are free and open to the public. An exhibition will be held September 6 through September 10; the auction will take place on September 11.
