Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’ dress up for auction
London: Amy Winehouse’s iconic dress which she wore on the cover of her ‘Back To Black’ album is being put up for auction for charity.
Created by Thai-based designer Disaya, the chiffon print frock could fetch up to 20,000 pounds when it goes under the hammer later this month.
The money garnered from the sale will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up by the late singer’s parents in a bid to help young, vulnerable people.
The dress is being sold in London at Kerry Taylor Auctions’ ‘Passion for Fashion’ auction on Nov 29th.
Disaya lent the dress to the then relatively unknown Winehouse in 2006, when the singer’s stylist Louise Winwood was searching for clothes for the ‘Back To Black’ cover, the Daily Mail reported.
After the photoshoot, the frock was returned to the designer and stored away in her archive.
Other items which will be auctioned on that day are the dress worn by Audrey Hepburn when she collected her Oscar for ‘Roman Holiday’ in 1954 and two gowns worn by Elizabeth Taylor.
