LONDON, June 4 (UPI) -- Two dresses created by the late British fashion designer Alexander McQueen are headed to the auction block, Bonham's auction house says.

McQueen hanged himself in London in February. He was 40.

The Times of London reported Thursday two of his gowns inspired by the Salem Witch trials of 1692 and shown during Paris Fashion Week are being sold at auction this month.

One covered in gold sequins is expected to fetch between $17,000 and $26,000.

The other, which is threaded with gold sequins and peacock feathers, has a pre-sale estimate of between $14,500 and $20,000, the newspaper said.
