LONDON (AP) - The dress worn by Amy Winehouse on the cover of the late singer’s Grammy-winning “Back to Black” album has sold for over 43,000 pounds ($67,120) at auction.

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’s 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.
