The Jean Paul Gaultier line was unveiled at Paris Fashion Week this week.

A new fashion collection inspired by Amy Winehouse is in "bad taste", according to the late singer's father.

Mitch Winehouse said he was upset that designer Jean Paul Gaultier had chosen to base his runway show on his daughter.

The collection, which was unveiled at Paris Fashion Week, saw models walk down the catwalk wearing Amy Winehouse inspired beehive hairstyles.

In a message on Twitter, Mitch wrote: "We don't support the Jean Paul Galtier collection. It's in bad taste. Mitch."

The collection's launch coincides with the six-month anniversary of Amy's sudden death in July last year.
