London -The dress worn by late British soul singer Amy Winehouse on the cover of her Grammy-award winning album Back to Black is being put up for sale for charity, a London auctioneer said on Tuesday.
The printed chiffon dress, designed by young Thailand-based designer Disaya, is expected to raise between £10 000 and £20 000 at the sale at Kerry Taylor Auctions on November 29.
The money will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity to help vulnerable young people that was set up by her family following the 27-year-old singer's untimely death by alcohol poisoning on July 23.
"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, and always will," said Taylor.
Back to Black, Winehouse's second album released in 2006, became Britain's highest-selling album of the 21st century after her death.
