London:  The dress Amy Winehouse wore on the cover of her 'Back to Black' album is going under the hammer and is expected to raise between 10,000 and 20,000 pounds when it is auctioned at the end of this month.

The singer was loaned the chiffon-print frock by Thai designer Disaya when she was relatively unknown and her stylist Louise Winwood was looking for an outfit for her to wear in photographs for the artwork of the 2006 record, according to reports.

Following the photo shoot, the dress was returned to the designer and stored away but will now be sold in London at Kerry Taylor Auctions' 'Passion for Fashion' auction on November 29.

Proceeds from the auction will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
 
Auctioner Kerry Taylor said, "What makes this particular dress so special that it is an emblematic reminder of the magic voice and sublime talent of Amy Winehouse - a sound that resonates with an entire generation and always will."

Other outfits to be sold at the auction include two gowns that belonged to Dame Elizabeth Taylor and the dress worn by Audrey Hepburn when she collected her Oscar for 'Roman Holiday' in 1954.
