Shortly before Amy Winehouse passed away she was working with Fred Perry on a collection of clothing. Sadly her life was cut short at the age of 27, but Perry wants to share the collection with the world and is planning on donating the proceeds to the soon-to-be established Amy Winehouse foundation.

"When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection it was natural to continue," Winehouse's father Mitch said in a statement.

"Amy loved working on both collections and would want them to be made available. 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."

The majority of the collection features Houndstooth sweater dresses, skirts, 50’s Micro Houndstooth Shirt Dress, collared shirts, belts and gloves. The collection screams Winehouse. Check out the full collection here.

Not only is Perry donating proceeds from this collection to the charity, he’s planning on making seasonal donations as well—as soon as Amy’s father gets the charity up and running.

Amy’s father Mitch announced his plans to start a charity in his daughters honor shortly after she passed away. Instead of selling her North London home, he’s going to set up the charity in her home.

The charity will provide support for those dealing with substance abuse and possibly also include a rehabilitation center.

"I was with my cousin Michael when I heard and straight away I said I wanted an Amy Winehouse Foundation, something to help the things she loved - children, horses, but also to help those struggling with substance abuse."

He added that he hopes this foundation will help start a trend—one where rehabilitation clinics are actually affordable.

"In this country, if you cannot afford a private rehabilitation clinic, there is a two-year waiting list for help. With the help of Keith Vaz MP, we are trying to change that."

Amy’s charitable ways never made headlines, but she actually donated a lot of her money to various causes. In 2010 she donated proceeds from her song "Back To Black" to the Global Fund's "Born HIV Free" campaign.
