Based in Amy’s home borough of Camden, the exhibition will run from September 12th - 6th October 2013. ‘For You I Was A Flame’ follows on from the hugely successful ‘Family Portrait’ exhibition held at the London Jewish Museum, with both exhibitions created in close collaboration with Amy’s family and the Amy Winehouse Foundation. The foundation is using the hashtag #Amys30 to share pictures from the events, which can be used on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

London’s Jewish Museum opens a new exhibition this week, taking an intimate look at the life of the late artist Amy Winehouse. Supported by Amy’s family, the museum has been given unprecedented access to the singer’s belongings, including her guitar, record collection and iconic outfits. Located in the heart of Camden, Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait celebrates Amy’s passion for music, fashion, London and her family.
The exhibition centres around four themes: Judaism, Family and Home; Amy and London, Music and the artist's status as a Style Icon. Amongst the items on display is a pin-up style gingham dress, designed by Amy as part of her collaboration with Fred Perry.
Amy's brother, Alex Winehouse, played a major role in the exhibition and says: "I hope, in this most fitting of places that the world gets to see this other side not only to Amy, but to our typical Jewish family." Alex is also Creative Director of the Amy Winehouse Foundation, set up in Amy's memory to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people. Fred Perry continues to support the foundation through a collaborative collection, as well as the auction of 60 customised shirts by famous fans of the brand, including The Specials, Damon Albarn and Bradley Wiggins.
Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait runs from 3rd July - 15th September 2013. For further information and tickets, visit: www.jewishmuseum.org.uk/Amy

For Autumn/Winter 2012 Fred Perry have designed the Amy Winehouse Collection in support of the Amy Winehouse Foundation; a charity established in the late singer’s name to help struggling young people. With the support of Amy’s family, Fred Perry have developed a capsule range of product true to Amy’s style.
Key styles from Amy’s iconic Fred Perry collections have been recreated in seasonal prints and colours – tonal miniature leopard print and monochrome oversized ginghams checks offer a graphic edge to solid blacks. Mother of pearl buttons and champagne tipping details add a sophisticated hint of colour to the silk knit Fred Perry shirts and pique dress.
Stand up collar shirts and oversizded gingham checks are teamed with flood length skinny trousers complete with leopard print turn ups; worn with the all black bomber jacket this contemporary take on a 1950s look is characteristic of Amy’s style
The stand out piece is the leopard print tonal button down collar shirt dress, complete with waist cinching belt. The range remains very typically Amy; sexy, stylish and individual.
Fred Perry will be making a seasonal contribution from this collection to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
