Mitch Winehouse hated catwalk tribute to Amy

Mitch Winehouse has hit out at fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier after he staged a catwalk ‘tribute’ to his late daughter Amy in Paris two nights ago.

Gaultier’s show included models walking the catwalk smoking and made up with Winehouse’s trademark beehive hairpieces and heavy duty eyeliner.

Mitch said he and the rest of the late singer’s family were upset when they saw pictures of the event and that they believed the whole thing to be “in bad taste”.
He said of this: “The family was 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.”

He continued: “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 glamorises some of the more upsetting times in her life. That’s upsetting for her family”.

Mitch also said that he was angered that Gaultier had not offered to make a donation to the Amy Winehouse Foundation and said that whole event was “purely about Gaultier making money”.

The fashion designer himself has described the show as “a tribute” and said that he felt the whole occasion had been a “joyous” one.

At least Jean Paul Gaultier didn’t have his models┬árolling around on the floor, drunk out of their minds and punching photographers.

Now that would have been a tribute.
