LONDON (AP) -- The dress worn by Amy Winehouse on the cover of the late singer's Grammy-winning "Back to Black" album has sold for over 43,000 pounds ($67,120) at auction.
Kerry Taylor Auctions says the polka-dot chiffon dress, designed in 2006, was purchased by Musea de la Moda -- a fashion museum in Santiago, Chile -- for 43,200 pounds.
It said the dress's designer, Disaya, agreed to donate proceeds from the sale to a foundation set up in Winehouse's name.
Winehouse's father, Mitch, attended the auction and called the donation a "wonderful start to the foundation," which was set up to help vulnerable youth following Winehouse's death in July.
A British coroner ruled the singer, known for her beehive hairdos, drank herself to death.
