Proceeds from Amy Winehouse's final collections for fashion label Fred Perry will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which her father set up in her memory after her death.
The British brand will release ranges that Winehouse designed before she was found dead last month.
Winehouse's previous creations have sold well the designer, and the pieces from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection will be sold to benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, according to her father, Mitch Winehouse.
In a statement, Daddy Winehouse said, "When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection it was natural to continue. Amy loved working on both collections and would want them to be made available." He continued, "All the money we make and the donation that Fred Perry will give will go straight into to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which we are setting up to help children and young people in her name."
A statement from Fred Perry read as follows: "Amy was passionate and dedicated to the collaboration, and her signature style is clearly stamped across each piece. Amy's royalties and fees from both collections will be donated to the soon-to-be-established Amy Winehouse Foundation. Fred Perry will also make a seasonal donation to the Foundation."
The Amy Winehouse Foundation will provide help and support to those battling addiction and is rumored to be headquartering at the singer's former home.
