Two dresses owned by the late Amy Winehouse have been stolen from her Camden home.

The dresses were on display the house in Camden, which has been turned into a shrine by fans since her death last year.

One of the garments was Winehouse's wedding dress from when she married Blake Fielder-Civil in 2006. The other was a 'newspaper print' cocktail dress the singer wore on Later... With Jools Holland, in the same year.

The dresses were set to be put up for auction to raise money for The Amy Winehouse Foundation.

It was expected the wedding dress would fetch £100,000 at the auction, and the cocktail dress £30,000.

The singer's father, Mitch Winehouse, described the theft as "a blow".

He said: "There was a window of about two days while that process was underway when the dresses could have been taken.

"We’re going through everything else to see what else, if anything, has been lifted."

Among the stolen dresses were numerous other garments, however it appears all other items were ignored by the thief.

According to Mitch Winehouse the wedding dress would not have been worth more than £100 in shops, whereas some other dresses at the house were far more valuable.

He added: "We are all baffled as to why some of her designer dresses didn’t go too. There were a couple from Dolce & Gabbana worth a fortune.

"Her wedding dress was only a little cotton thing, a hundred quid at best in the shops. Whoever nicked it realised its significance and knew it had an extra value."

It is thought the targeting of these specific items may mean the dresses were stolen to order.

Since Amy Winehouse's death last year, The Amy Winehouse Foundation has raised over £1million. The funds are donated to children's hospices and drugs addiction counsellors.
