Musea de la Moda Museum Buys Amy Winehouse Dress for $67,120

Kerry Taylor Auctions of London said the chiffon dress, designed in 2006, was brought by Musea de la Moda a fashion museum in Santiago, Chile.

“This sale demonstrates that even in these difficult economic times, the appetite for haute couture is undiminished and we are already looking forward to our next auction in February,” said Kerry Taylor, who specializes in vintage couture.

The frock was created by fashion label Disaya, which loaned the U.K. size 8 dress out for Winehouse’s album cover shoot. Disaya has agreed to donate the sale proceeds to The Amy Winehouse Foundation.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation was established following the singer’s July death and is designed to “provide help, support or care” to young people “who are suffering from economic disadvantage, who are ill, who are suffering with drug abuse; children and young adults who need help desperately,” as Mitch Winehouse has told CNN.
