Robbers take two frocks that were set to be auctioned for charity
The white mini that Amy wore to marry Blake Fielder-Civil in 2006 was taken, as well as a newspaper-print number that she’d donned for a TV performance later that year.
‘It’s sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value,’ says Mitch, 60.
‘It is another blow for us.’
The frocks were due to be auctioned off for around £130,000 in New York later this year to raise money for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was set up after she died aged 27 last year.
Mitch believes that the clothes were stolen to order.
The family had catalogued Amy‘s possessions in preparation for storage and the thieves ignored other designer pieces that she owned.
‘There was a window of about two days while that process was underway when the dresses could have been taken,’ Mitch tells The Sun.
‘Her wedding dress was only a little cotton thing, a hundred quid at best in the shops. Whoever nicked it realised its significance and knew it had an extra value.’
