The sale of Audrey Hepburn's iconic black dress from classic film Breakfast at Tiffany's is to fund 15 new educational centres in India.
The dress sparked a frenzy when it went to auction
The black Givenchy dress, made specifically for Hepburn's role in the 1961 movie, sold to an anonymous bidder for £467,200 at Christie's in December.
Proceeds from the sale have gone to Calcutta-based charity City of Joy Aid.
The first new educational centre is being built in Lakshmikantapur, Bengal, and will be opened later this month.
It will be equipped with computers and audio aids to help teach English to children who otherwise would never go to school.
French author Dominique Lapierre set up City of Joy Aid, which helps India's poor through a network of clinics, schools, rehabilitation centres and hospital boats.
Lapierre was given the dress - one of three made for Hepburn in her role as eccentric Manhattan socialite Holly Golightly - by designer Hubert de Givenchy.
It had been expected to fetch £70,000, but caused a bidding frenzy when it was sold in London on 5 December.
The winning bidder paid £410,000, with the rest of the sale price made up of buyer's fees.
