Q&A with Fashion Department Coordinator

Katie Healy has joined Chiswick Auctions Designer Handbags & Fashion department as the Fashion Department Coordinator. We sit down with Katie to discuss her favourite designers and what is on her Christmas list this year.

Favourite handbag?
Louis Vuitton Capucines Mini in Croc, they are especially beautiful in exotic skins. I love the elegance of a top handle bag, even more so when it has the option of a crossbody strap.

How did you get into fashion?
I have been obsessed with fashion for as long as I can remember. My main weakness has to be handbags and accessories. My handbag collection really began growing around 10 years ago when I discovered the preloved market, the excitement and buzz of finding rare and sought after handbags, usually for lower than the retail price had me hooked. For me, buying preloved is so much more exciting than off the shelf, I never know what I’ll find and chances are I won’t see everyone wearing the same piece.

Describe your style?
My wardrobe is quite eclectic, I feel my style really is reflected by my mood and the occasion. Typically, I’d say edgy with a chic finish. In these cold months comfort and coziness is everything for me.




What’s on your Christmas wish-list this year?
Fendi Logo Baguette bag In shearling and the Louis Vuitton bum bag in shearling.
