Two dresses have been stolen from the house where singer Amy Winehouse died in London. Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, says that a short white dress that Amy wore to marry Blake Fielder-Civil has been stolen, along with a newsprint cocktail dress she wore in a performance on the BBC show “Later.”
The dresses, which hold obvious sentimental value after Amy’s death, were intended to go up for auction for the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Together they were expected to raise over $200,000 for the organization.
“It’s sickening that someone would steal something in the
knowledge of its sentimental value,” Amy’s father tells The Sun. “The house in Camden is being sold so all of her possessions have been tagged, numbered and logged in preparation of storage. There was a window of about two days while that process was underway when the dresses could have been taken. A few people were involved and there was some coming and going.”
He expects that whoever stole the dresses was a fan, because extremely expensive Dolce & Gabbana dresses were left behind, while dresses of sentimental value were taken. “Her wedding dress was only a little cotton thing, a hundred quid at best in
the shops. Whoever nicked it realised its significance and knew it had an
extra value,” he says.
