_g Skirt and jumper, Greta Garbo. Pucci-like pattern in brown, orange and white. Unlabelled.

Today saw the start of the sale, where bidders have 20 stunning pieces to choose from. Greta Garbo, who is considered one of the leading actresses of all time, died in 1990. Julien's Auctions, one of the world's premier auction houses in sports and celebrity memorabilia, previously auctioned Garbo's estate, which will now be on sale at Bukowskis Market.

"I felt it was a once in a lifetime, so I struck. It was actually magic to get close to her person in this way. To bring home her stuff for little Lomma was staggering," says Michael Reimer, who consigned the collection to Bukowskis.

Greta Garbo was a fairly discreet person when it came to her personal life. In her last years she was completely shielded from the spotlight, therefore this auction offers a rare glimpse into her life.
