Winehouse dress sells for £40,000

The dress worn by Amy Winehouse on the front of her Back To Black album has sold for more than £40,000 at auction.

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

Amy was found dead at her home in Camden, north London, this July after a lengthy battle with drink and drugs.

Her father Mitch was at the auction in central London to see the dress fetch £43,200 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."

The foundation has already made three donations - each of £10,000 - to separate children's charities including a hospice and a project that helps seriously ill babies.

A new album of unreleased tracks, called Lioness: Hidden Treasures, is released on Monday with £1 from each album sold going to the foundation.

Mitch said: "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."

Also included in today's sale, organised by Kerry Taylor Auctions, were dresses worn by Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor.
