The dress Amy Winehouse wore on the cover of her Grammy-award winning album 'Back To Black' has been sold for 40,000 pounds at auction in London yesterday (November 29).
The polka dot chiffon dress was bought by a South American fashion museum for 43,200 pounds at La Galleria in London.
Kerry Taylor, the auctioneer 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."
Her father Mitch, who was in attendance, 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 Amy Winehouse Foundation was established by the singer's parents in July, although it experienced a setback when a man obtained the web domain Amywinehousefoundation.com' and refused to give it up.
Meanwhile, Lioness: Hidden Treasures', a selection of demos and rarities from Winehouse's musical career, will be released next week.
1 pound from every sale of 'Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures' will be donated to her foundation.
