AMY WINEHOUSE Impact On Fashion

Amy Jade Winehouse (London, September 14, 1983 – July 23, 2011) was a singer and songwriter of Jewish origin, known for its mix of various musical genres, including including soul, jazz, R & B , rock & roll and ska.


In 2003 Winehouse released her debut album, Frank, who earned positive reviews and was commercially successful in his native UK, and was nominated for the Mercury Prize awards. Their second studio album, Back To Black, was published in 2006. For this album the singer won six Grammy Award nominations, which won five, including Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist.

This led Winehouse to get the record for the first woman to win the most awards in one night and become the first British artist won five Grammys.

Winehouse received media attention through not only due to her voice. Her distinctive style, tattoos and beehive hairstyle, have made some inspiration for fashion designers like Karl Lagerfeld. 


Lagerfeld saw her and immediately knew that Amy was to be his muse in the new collection from Chanel.

The Kaiser (as it is known Lagerfeld) praised and promised to see her. Chanel got an exclusive collection inspired by Amy Winehouse, with the typical bun hairstyles, mini-dresses, classic dresses with lots of different textures and sensuality. “She is a beautiful and talented artist, I love your hair actually reminds me of Brigitte Bardot,” Karl said about the author of Back To Black.

Then, the prestigious designer Roberto Cavalli came close to hiring her as their brand image. Afterwards Fred Perry classic and elegant English firm of clothing, hired Amy as a Designer and thats when she take out a collection created by herself.


His constant legal problems, addiction to drugs and alcohol and their medical complications from his self-destructive behavior were a sourceof headlines since 2007. She was found dead in his apartment on July 23, 2011 at 27 years of age for reasons that are currently investigation.

She always went back to “Blake”
