Dress Amy Winehouse wore for final stage performance fetches £180,000 for charity

THE dress Amy Winehouse wore for her final stage performance has sold for more than £180,000.

The Rehab singer wore the bamboo design mini-dress in Belgrade in June 2011 — a month before she died aged 27.

The dress, which sold for 16 times its estimate, was one of more than 800 of Amy’s items sold by Julien’s Auctions in LA.

The £3million raised will go to a foundation to help young people struggling with addiction.

Many of the headline items attracted bids shattering their pre-auction estimates.

The bold red leather heart-shaped Moschino bag Winehouse took to the 2007 Brit Awards – a night she won the British female solo artist award – fetched 204,800 dollars (£152,000), 13 times the pre-auction estimate.

A gold flame Dolce & Gabbana stage-worn dress went for 150,000 dollars (£111,000), 30 times its guide price.

A Temperley London tan and black jumpsuit worn for her performance celebrating Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday yielded more than 121,000 dollars (£90,000). Its estimate was 1,000 dollars.
