Wednesday November 30, 8.29am: The Disaya dress worn by Amy Winehouse on her multi-platinum- selling back to Black album has been sold for £43,200 - quadruple its estimated price - at a Kerry Taylor Auction held in London . The polka dot chiffon look was bought by the Fundacion Museo de la Moda - a fashion museum in Chile, with all proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Profits from the sale of the cream and red polka dot Disaya dress will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up in the singer's memory.
The late singer's dress will be sold off this evening as part the Passion for Fashion auction in London, which opened for viewings yesterday.
Miss Winehouse's father Mitch said he was proud too see his daughter's dress up for sale alongside outfits worn by the other famous women.
"All these dresses are here for some of the most beautiful women of the 20th and 21st Century. So it's a testimony to them as well for, you know, the enduring love for Audrey Hepburn, Princess Diana and for Amy. So it's an honour to be here amongst
those dresses," he told Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper.
Miss Winehouse, who battled addiction to drugs, died at her home in Camden, North London in July aged 27. A coroner ruled that her sudden and tragic death was caused by alcohol poisoning.
