Heavy on Fashion: Style Flash

Amy Winehouse collection is a go! 

WinehouseLA

The Amy Winehouse fashion collection is going to be release according to Fred Perry. The designer has received the OK from the Winehouse family and promised that the new A/W 2011 collection is everything that we will expect and more.  The royalties and fee that Amy would have received will be donated to the soon-to-be-established Amy Winehouse Foundation. What a great idea! 

As soon I heard about this I headed over to Fred Perry website and I have to say I am loving the use of houndstooth throughout on the collection. Very Amy indeed. Check it out here!
