David Bowie has donated three of his very own Fedoras to tomorrow's
The online information makes no mention of many of the lots up for auction, but I can tell you that these incredible items are autographed by David and really are the very last of these hats from that period.

This is the entry from the auction catalogue that just about sums up the generosity of this donation:

Straight from the wardrobe of legendary music icon and actor David Bowie, three autographed Fedoras that he wore in the 1970s and 1980s.

The auction commences at 6:00pm local time tomorrow and tickets to attend are $100. To purchase tickets, call Lynn Schauwecker or Angie Kwak at Tibet House (212-807-0563).
