DEFYING GRAVITY: Auction houses may be struggling to off-load some works of art in these dark days, but there’s one sector where demand is thriving. Christie’s recent vintage clothing sale, “Resurrection: Avant-Garde,” raked in a total of 270,925 pounds, or $449,738 at current exchange. The star lot was a Paco Rabanne tunic dress in the designer’s signature aluminum that went for 15,000 pounds, or $24,900 — more than double the estimate. The designer garb, including rare items by Versace, Dior, Courrèges and Vivienne Westwood, was part of the private collection of Katy Rodriguez and Mark Haddaway, owners of the L.A. and New York boutiques Resurrection.
