To celebrate the best in British Fashion, fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo and the Royal Mail have worked in collaboration over the past few months, creating a wonderful selection of 10 fashion stamps. The stamps are released today and are in honour of the Jubilee and 2012 Olympic Games held in London. Just in time to send a fashionable piece of mail home when travelling this summer in Europe! So interesting to see the designs they chose for each stamp – my personal favourite being the black feather ensemble by the great Alexander McQueen. Another unique aspect of the stamps is that the focus is strictly on the outfit, rather than who is wearing it (the male and female body and face outlines have been done in white to match the stamps background). The stamps are available at all Royal Mail Post Offices, and are priced at £5.10 for the collection. For all you stamp collectors or travellers this summer, be sure to send your friends with a one of a kind, stylish stamp, and honour the great fashion designers of Britain.
