Amy Winehouse Unveils Her Fred Perry Designs

Updated


Flynet

As she prepares to show off her new range of clothing designed for British sportswear firm Fred Perry, Amy Winehouse says she’s been drug-free for three years and is in a better place. “I’m much healthier now,” she tells the U.K. edition of
Glamour
in its November issue. “I used to use drugs and I haven’t used drugs in almost three years. I literally woke up one day and was like, ‘I don’t want to do this any more.'” While her private life around her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil was in such turmoil, she says she focused on her fashion line. “I went through a lot of trouble with my ex-husband, so I had such a long time to think about the collection.” The divorced singer has drawn on her own tastes to design the chic line—and she models it for singer-turned-photographer Bryan Adams in the magazine. “I like ’40s and ’50s stuff. I played Rizzo in Grease when I was a kid at school, and I’ve always worn bowling shirts and things like classic trenchcoats.” The collection starts at a size six (U.K.) because she wanted to be able to wear them. “When I started eating right, I lost quite a lot of weight,” she explains. “Everyone thinks it was because of my lifestyle. It was because my eating habits got a lot better and I came to my natural weight. I’m not really skinny but I’m tiny and I couldn’t really get anything because they didn’t do a size six.” –Simon Perry
