The best way to do research closed fine art auctions is to keep a notebook dedicated to ebay fine art auctions that have ended in each category that you want to specialize in such as women jeans, meant for knitted garments or childrens jeans and skirts. As you start research a new category make a section for it and start to research the names of the brands that close for the highest price listed first. Write down what names have the most estimates, sell for the highest prices and have the highest sell through rate. As you add more and more names to the list, you will start to see a pattern of what folks want and will bid for them.
In addition to researching closed fine art auctions, the other key is to do field research. Go to your local thrift store with a compose and small notepad. Copy down all of the names you see on the slab that you are new to. When you get home look up those items on ebay. Many of the names will not yield results that would make it worth going back to buy the item, BUT every once in a while you will find that overlooked gem that will make it worth your time going back to buy.
