Amy Winehouse style exhibit to open at Grammy Museum
Fans didn’t get to say goodbye to the late singer Amy Winehouse with words. But a forthcoming exhibit will give them a chance to bring them closer to the beehive-haired British crooner, who died in 2011 at age 27 of accidental alcohol poisoning.
The first-ever exhibit dedicated to Winehouse will debut at Los Angeles’ Grammy Museum next month, the Associated Press reports. The exhibit is set to open Jan. 17 and remain through April 13.
On display: the Grammy-winning “Rehab” singer’s most popular outfits, journal entries and never-seen handwritten lyrics. What’s more, the bulk of the items are set to be auctioned by Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills in 2021 to benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which aims to prevent drug and alcohol misuse on young individuals.
The fashion will be a highlight. Winehouse was known for her distinctive style, accented beyond clothes by tattoos, cat eyeliner and her rocker attitude.
“Amy not only brought her gift of music to the world, but also her fashion,” her father, Mitch Winehouse, told the AP in a statement. “We’re eager for people to see her bold, beautiful spirit through all forms of her creativity.”
The looks include the halter mini dress she wore during her final stage performance in Serbia, which was designed by her stylist Naomi Parry. Parry also designed never-worn dresses for Winehouse’s canceled 2011 summer tour.
