Amy Winehouse’s family feel pain every time they see her outfits hanging on the rails
Amy Winehouse’s family has decided to part with her clothes on her 10 year death anniversary. The family has decided to auction some of their daughter’s outfits to raise money for the charity and also because it is really painful for them to see them hanging in the storage.
In an interview with ‘Mirror’ Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse said, “Every time the family goes to the lock- up, it’s overwhelmingly emotional seeing her lovely dresses hanging on the rails, so we decided to auction these show outfits.”
He continued, “Amy’s belongings were in a giant lock-up and the family decided that we would keep the most precious, personal items for ourselves.”
Mitch Winehouse, 70, further added, “Auctioning others would help those in need via the foundation and other charities. It seems a fitting way to raise funds in her name.”
