Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’ Dress to be Sold At Auction!
When news of Amy Winehouse’s death hit the news, the music industry was well and truly rocked. Not only was Amy a singing sensation, but she was also a huge British fashion and style icon, teaming up with Iconic British brand, Fred Perry for an exclusive collaboration.
Amy’s look was one of a kind, which is why her simply polka dot dress, worn by her on the front cover of the Back to Black album, is set to be sold at auction. The white strapless dress was designed by Central Saint Martins graduate Disaya Sorakraikitikul and was leant to the singer in 2006. Stylist Louise Winwood teamed the dress with a thick red leather belt and leopard print heels for the photoshoot, shot by photographer Mischa Richter.
An estimate of Â£10,000 to Â£20,000 has been put on the dress and proceeds from the sale will, taking place on November 29th, will be donated to Amy Winehouse Foundation, established by the singer’s parents shortly after her death. The dress itself was donated by Disaya as she wanted to help raise funds for the foundation.
Auctioneer Kerry Taylor, who will sell the dress, said: “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.”
It is truly an iconic dress, with lots of history and memories of the fabulous singer. It is a great piece of memorabilia for any fan who is able to afford it and with proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, it’s all for a great cause.
