The polka dot dress Amy Winehouse wore for the front cover of her Back to Black album has sold at auction for £43,200.

The white and red printed chiffon frock was bought by the Museo de la Moda, a fashion museum based in Chile.

The dress was created by Thailand-based designer Disaya, who donated all proceeds of the sale to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Amy's father, Mitch, who set up the charity to help drug addicts and other vulnerable young people in the wake of his daughter's death, said he was "over the moon" at the donation.

"We owe a great debt to the designer, Disaya, who donated the proceeds from the sale," said Mitch Winehouse, who was present at Tuesday's Passion For Fashion auction in central London.

Amy was found dead in her Camden flat in July, at the age of 27. The Grammy winner's death was a result of alcohol poisoning, an inquest found.

Her 2006 album Back To Black won five Grammys and propelled Amy to a platform of international fame.

A new album of the singer's unreleased tracks, titled Lioness: Hidden Treasures, will go on sale next week, with £1 from every album sold donated to the foundation.
