The dress worn by singer Amy Winehouse during her last concert was sold for $243,200, 16 times its estimated value, at an auction held in California.
Amy Winehouse wore this black bamboo print dress to a concert in Belgrade in 2011. A month later, on July 23, she died at her home in London of an alcohol overdose. She was 27 years old and had struggled with alcohol and drug addiction.
The dress sold was the most valuable item of a total of 800, including books, DVDs, which belonged to the artist and were offered at auction by his parents, Mitch and Janis.
Some 4 million dollars were obtained at the end of the sale organized Saturday and Sunday by the house Julien. A heart-shaped handbag made by Moschino, which Winehouse wore to the 2007 Brit Awards, sold for $204,800. Other dresses that belonged to her were sold at prices ranging from 12,500 to 150,000 dollars.
