In 2011, when Amy Wineghouse wore a Bamboo-print dress which was designed by her stylist and one of her friend named Naomi Parry. She wore the bamboo print dress on stage in Belgrade, Serbia, which was also her last live performance in 2011
For Amy’s upcoming European shoot, for what she has collaborated on a collection of 11 frocks to be worn by the “Rehab songer.” But unfortunately back them in June 2011 it was a rough day, which was a total disaster with the Grammy winner slurring and wandering off stage. Later her tour was cancelled aand that’s why these beautiful outfits were hardly worn.
“I feel an immense amount of sadness when I look at that dress,” Parry told The Post, noting that, during the time, Winehouse, who struggled with addiction, had just been to rehab. “[The dress] was supposed to be the start of something new and moving forward. She had been doing so well.”
Instead, Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning a month later. She was only 27.
“[The dress] went from symbolizing something new and exciting to absolute devastation,” said Parry.
Hundreds of items from Amy Winehouse’s wardrobe will be auctioned off at Julien’s Auction in Beverly Hills on Saturday and Sunday, with proceeds benefiting the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which helps young people struggling with addiction. Between $15,000 and $17,000 is expected to be raised.
Accessories from Miu Miu, a pair of Freed ballet flats worn on stage with Mick Jagger, a Dolce & Gabbana cardigan, and a heart-shaped Moschino bag that Winehouse wore to the BRIT Awards in 2007 — estimated to fetch $15,000 to $20,000 — are also on offer.
Winehouse’s performance was a watershed moment in her career. Designers would send her boatloads of high-end clothing, and she would quickly become a household name. (When Winehouse’s addiction spiralled out of control, some fashion houses distanced themselves, but “Dolce & Gabbana always looked after us,” according to Parry.)
Winehouse’s belongings were stored for nearly a decade after her death, until her family decided to exhibit and auction off her personal effects for a good cause.
