Amy Winehouse’s Father is Pissed at Gaultier Fashion Show Tribute.

Mitch was upset because he felt the entire fashion show was an attempt to make money off of his daughters death.  Although he was not in attendance, news and photos of the event soon flooded the media.  He was floored as he saw all of the models with tons of eyeliner own, and the Winehouse style behive hairdo.  Just so there was no mistaken, who the models were modeled after, there was a doo-wop quartet, singing Amy Winehouse songs.  YIKES!!

Mitch said,

“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.

“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 glamourizes some of the more upsetting times in her life. That’s upsetting for her family.”

“This is purely about Gaultier making money, and that’s wrong.”

Gaultier defended it as simply a tribute o the singer.

“She was an icon of fashion and truly, the sense of how she mixed the clothes — it was great.

“It was very Eighties but did it in a very modern way. It is very joyous.

I personally don’t think that Gaultier needed Amy’s style to make money.  He simply thought it was a nice twist for his fashions. Yes, a notice to the family, or maybe even an invite to the show, would have been nice, but Mitch should somewhat touched and honored.  The debate continues on Amy Winehouse’s originality.  Was her whole style a rip off of an earlier period?  This was not brought into question. I will say, Gaultier should make a donation to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, not only is it a good cause and the right thing to do, it will also shut Mitch up!
