Amy Winehouse, Fred Perry

Turns out, Amy Winehouse's posthumous back catalog contains more than just her musical contributions.

Last year, the late singer began collaborating with designer Fred Perry on a fashion line, with her debut collection hitting stores last fall. As it happens, Amy, who's said to have been quite involved in the creation of her capsule collection, went through something of a prolific sartorial phase and in fact had banked enough designs to carry her namesake line through to a fall 2012 collection with the brand.

So what's going to happen to her catwalk creations?

For now, nothing.

"We had a great working and personal relationship with Amy during the design and development of the collaboration," a statement released by the British label, which has already released two collections under the Grammy winner's name, said today.

"Amy's unique sense of style and attitude pervaded the entire collection. She was a pleasure to work with and will be deeply missed by the entire Fred Perry team."

Last fall, Winehouse discussed the fashion collaboration (some styles are still available online, but selling out quickly) with Harper's Bazaar, and told the magazine that she had clear ideas straight away as to what the line should contain.

"I knew exactly what I wanted," she said. "And I love Fred Perry so much. I was honored that they would even, like, 'Do you want to come and do a line?' Me? Like, me?"

She also noted that she was focused from the get-go on carrying out her vision.

"Ve'y much so. Ve'y much so. And that's been the whole thing. We've pretty much done like up to autumn/winter 2012, and I'm like, 'Have we?' Yeah!"

It remains unclear if the company will release the collections they have banked, though a spokesperson told Britain's Daily Telegraph that they would wait to speak to the Winehouse family before making any announcements and would abide by their wishes.
