(PRWEB UK) 31 July 2012
The UK’s leading online fancy dress retailer, allfancydress.com has reported significant short term sales of Amy Winehouse themed costumes and accessories with fans of the late pop diva paying homage to the one-year anniversary of her untimely death in her bedroom in Camden, North London.
Winehouse passed away aged just 27 and in her short life enjoyed significant critical acclaim across the globe for her jazz and blues-infused music that had fans grooving to the beat ever since her rise to stardom in 2003.
Following the passing of his much-loved daughter, father Mitch Winehouse helped set up The Amy Winehouse Foundation to provide support for “young people, especially those who are in need by reason of ill health, disability, financial disadvantage or addiction”. The short term success of the foundation will see it fund a new London children’s hospice as well as numerous scholarships in Amy’s memory.
Winehouse’s trademark beehive hair style and her extravagant dresses have become a fashion statement in themselves with fans flocking to All Fancy Dress for novelty Amy Winehouse outfits to pay their respects this weekend.
Mark Heaton, of All Fancy Dress, said: “Amy Winehouse was one of the finest singers of the modern generation of pop stars. Not only has she left a lasting legacy for her music but her fashion sense lives on.
“Fans that continue to idolise Amy Winehouse have jumped on our very own costumes and accessories modelled on her unique look, with many partygoers likely to be paying tribute to Amy on the dance floors this weekend.”
Pop and rock star costumes are some of the most popular fancy dress themes with a great number of novelty costumes and accessories modelled on legendary icons from Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson to The Spice Girls and The Beatles.
