Over $4 Million dollars was sold at the auction with all proceeds going towards the Amy Winehouse foundation.
The dress that the late Amy Winehouse wore at her last gig before she passed away in 2011 was sold at an auction for items her estate owned.
Julien’s Auctions in Los Angeles sold various items, including the dress which was sold for six times its' expected value at £180,000.
The collection as a whole raised over $4 million, of which featured bags and clothes that Winehouse wore at different standout moments in her career, with all money going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity her parents started to help young people with addictions issues.
Other items sold included a red leather heart-shaped Moschino bag she wore at the 2007 BRIT Awards, the year she won the award for Best British Female Solo Artist and British Album of the Year for Back To Black.
A metal street sign reading "Camden Square" inscribed with handwritten notes paying tribute to Winehouse after her death was sold for $19,200.
A number of the items will be shown at the forthcoming Amy: Beyond The Stage exhibition in London on November 26 before being sent to the winning bidders.
