Amy’s Back To Black dress raises £36,000

Amy Winehouse Dress AuctionThe dress worn by Amy Winehouse on the front of her Back To Black album has raised £36,000 at auction for the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

The polka dot chiffon dress was bought by a South American fashion museum, with proceeds going to the foundation set up by Amy’s family in her memory.

Her father Mitch was at the auction in central London to see the dress fetch £43,200 (including auctioneer fees) after the winning bid was made by the Museo de la Moda in Santiago, Chile. He said:

“We are just over the moon and we owe a great debt to the designer, Disaya, who donated the proceeds from the sale. We are very proud to be helping these deserving causes and have been overwhelmed by the support the foundation has received. We are willing to consider a wide range of projects, as there are so many great organisations out there working with young people in need. We are researching and meeting with different groups who offer support in the areas we wish to fund. We are particularly keen to make donations in Camden, a place very close to the family’s hearts as Amy’s home.”

About the Amy Winehouse Foundation

In Amy’s memory, we work to inspire children and young people to build their self-esteem and resilience, so that they can flourish.

Our work is inspired by Amy’s spirit, her love of children and the challenges that she faced in her own life.

Today, the Amy Winehouse Foundation helps thousands of young people to feel supported and informed so that they are better able to manage their emotional wellbeing and make informed choices around things that can affect their lives.

We’re able to do this because of the support we receive from people like you. Anyone who believes in young people can become a part of our work and Amy’s legacy. By supporting our work, you will help them to transform their lives, flourish and be heard.
