Winehouse 'Black' dress to be sold

A dress worn by Amy Winehouse on the cover of her album Back To Black will be auctioned to raise money for the charity created in her memory.

The printed chiffon dress is expected to fetch up to £20,000 for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charitable trust set up by the late singer's family.

Winehouse died in July and an inquest heard she was five times the legal drink-drive limit.

After her death, Thailand-based designer Disaya decided to auction the dress, which was returned after the album cover shoot in 2006.

It will go under the hammer at La Galleria, London, on November 29 and all the proceeds will go to the foundation, which supports charitable activities for vulnerable young people.

Fashion auctioneer Kerry Taylor said: "In my opinion, what makes this particular dress so special is that it is an emblematic reminder of the magic voice and sublime talent of Amy Winehouse - a sound that resonates with an entire generation, and always will."

The multi-platinum-selling album Back To Black has sold at least 3.2 million copies to date and features chart hits Rehab and You Know I'm No Good.
