The sale celebrates iconic and historically important pieces from Hollywood's history. In 1996, Breanna Livie held the first Golden Closet sale. Livie went on to quickly establish a highly skilled team of researchers, graphic designers and photographers trained in the preservation of Hollywood memorabilia.

The Livie family history is seeped rich in Hollywood costumes, her grandparents Charles and Tillie James and her father Jim Livie, founded the Costume Rentals Corporation (CRC), one of the first independent motion picture costume companies. The Livie's were renowned for providing Hollywood with costumes for nearly 50 years.

The sale at Julien's include Orson Welles Citizen Kane complete suit, John Belushi's screen worn sunglasses from The Blues Brothers movie, Charlton Heston's head piece from The Ten Commandments and the original Terminator prop gun used by Schwarzenegger.
