The late Eunice Johnson introduced African Americans to the world of couture. Her collection of fashionable clothes and accessories is creating quite a buzz as they go on the auction block.

From big name designers like Valentino, Dolce and Gabbana, or Yves Saint Laurent, if you've ever wanted to own some vintage designer clothing, Thursday could be your lucky day.

That's when clothing from the estate of Eunice Johnson, the creator of the long-running Ebony Fashion Fair and wife of publishing tycoon John Johnson, goes up for auction.  Starting bids are as low as 100 dollars.

A tag sale is also planned, with items available for purchase off the rack for as low as $10 to $50.

Johnson died in January at the age of 93.
