Winehouse’s dress sells for $67,120
Kerry Taylor Auctions says the polka-dot chiffon dress, designed in 2006, was purchased by Musea de la Moda - a fashion museum in Santiago, Chile - for 43,200 pounds.
It said the dress designer, Disaya, agreed to donate proceeds from the sale to a foundation set up in Winehouse’s name.
Winehouse’s father, Mitch, attended the auction and called the donation a “wonderful start to the foundation,’’ which was set up to help vulnerable youth following Winehouse’s death in July.
A British coroner ruled the singer, known for her beehive hairdos, drank herself to death.
