After creating a runway show inspired by Amy Winehouse for Paris Fashion week Amy Winehouse’s outspoken dad Mitch has come forward to say he didn’t really appreciate that.
“The family were upset to see those pictures, they were a total shock. We’re still grieving for her loss, and we’ve had a difficult week with the six month anniversary of Amy’s death. To see her image lifted wholesale to sell clothes was a wrench we were not expecting or consulted on … We’re proud of her influence on fashion but find black veils on models, smoking cigarettes with a barbershop quartet singing her music in bad taste. It portrays a view of Amy when she was not at her best and glamorizes some of the more upsetting times in her life. That’s upsetting for her family.”
Watch the show above and let us know what you think.
