Thatcher's business suits raise $145,000 at auction
LONDON (AFP) - Seven suits belonging to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, including the one worn on the day she was confirmed as Conservative party leader, fetched 73,000 pounds (S$144,436) at a London sale on Monday.
The jade green wool outfit worn for her Tory coronation in February 1975 proved to be the prize lot at the Christie's auction, selling for 25,000 pounds to an anonymous bidder.
An online bidder in South Korea snapped up the six remaining garments for 48,125 pounds.
The suits are thought to be the first of Thatcher's clothes to be sold at a public auction.
