Amy Winehouse, despite her misdemeanours, possessed an unbelievable amount of talent, not only in music but also in fashion. She had a collaboration with the British Institution, Fred Perry. The range is a true testament to her persona unlike other celebrities who try their hand at designing clothing lines. The line has a collection of prints and silhouettes that are awkward, but sexy which suggests that she definitely had a lot of input.
She was also the muse for Chanel’s head designer, Karl Lagerfeld which inspired a ‘Amy Winehouse’ Chanel collection for Pre-fall 2008. The clothes definitely represented self-expression, allowing a woman to wear what she wanted to make her feel good.
She definitely didn’t follow trends, and if she hadn’t been so over-shadowed by her problems, she would have lead them. RIP.
