From Julien’s Auctions over 800 pieces including clothes, musical instruments and records that belonged to the British soul diva who died on 23 July 2011

The dress is probably the most anticipated item and should be sold for close to $ 20,000. Overall, sales are expected to bring in around $ 2 million in total. The British diva died on July 23, 2011, when she was only 27 years old. The proceeds will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which supports vulnerable young adults facing addiction. The Grammy-winning and award-winning singer for 2006’s “Back to Black” album has often talked about her personal experiences of alcohol and drug addiction.

Julien’s Auctions has exhibited in New York a small part of the objects that will be offered for sale. “It is very difficult to have to organize an auction with parents whose daughter has died. The subject is very sensitive and it took them some time to agree to give the items away, realizing, of course, that fans, museums, collectors from all over the world will want to own them “, admitted Martin Nolan, director of the famous auction house.
