Correction: Jan Reeder, Doyle New York's Couture Specialist told me that the highest price at the recent Couture, Accessories, and Textile Auction was not $9,000, but rather $11,750, which went for a pair of late 18th century brocade shoes with clogs. They were very rare, in mint condition, with a London label, and although Ms. Reeder does not know if this is a record price paid for a pair of 18th century is "up there". In addition, she claimed to be "very pleased with the overall sale which reached close to the high estimates."
