Earlier this year Mitch revealed he wants his late daughter to be remembered for her successes, including the charity set up in her honour and the royalties which have helped out her family members.

Discussing his daughter’s legacy in an interview with The Sun, Mitch said his mission was to make sure people remember Amy for ‘her talent, her generosity and the love she showed us all’ and ‘not just her troubles with addiction.’

Since her untimely death, her parents, Mitch and mother Janis, set up the Amy Winehouse Foundation 2011 in their daughter’s memory.

The exhibition’s assistant curator Maria McLintock said Winehouse, who died of alcohol poisoning in July 2011, had left a rich and varied legacy in music and fashion.

‘What we’ve tried to do is tell her story as a creative person, as an incredible musician, as a fashion icon, but also include rare objects that maybe her fans have heard of but they haven’t seen before,’ she said.

Exhibits include handwritten lyrics from unreleased demos and the first guitar she bought as a teenager.
