Royal Mail does Great British Fashion

I love writing letters and cards to friends and family - yes we have text and e-mail but there is nothing more personal and heart-warming than receiving a thank you card or invitation in the post from a loved one.


So I'm loving that the Royal Mail are issuing these great new stamps from today!  These will make your post stylish and more fun that the usual ones.  Check out these designs from Sølve Sundsbø who has airbrushed out the models to show off ten great british designs from Alexander McQueen to Zandra Rhodes to our gorgeous Vivienne Westwood!

Here are my favourites!


Jean Muir’s fluid rust gown with its late 1970s matching turban:

This one is my the ultimate favourite!  I could see Betty from Mad Men wearing this, by Norman Hartnell.
