Royal Mail Creates Chic Fashion Stamp Set

The Royal Mail is doing its bit to make the postal service that little bit more chic thanks to their beautiful fashion-focused stamp collection.

The ten-stamp set celebrates icons of post-war British fashion and features creations from Alexander McQueen, Zandra Rhodes, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, Hardy Amies, Norman Hartnell, Ossie Clark, Tommy Nutter, Jean Muir and Granny Takes a Trip.

You can see Zandra (who is also one of MyDaily's excellent style bloggers) posing with her design:

The stylised images, shot by acclaimed photographer Solve Sundsbo, coincide nicely with the V&A's Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950 exhibition so it comes as no surprise that the museum advised Royal Mail on their latest collection.

According to Claire Wilcox, the V&A's senior fashion curator, "The V&A has the national collection of fashion in the UK and remains a source of inspiration to many fashion designers. Britain's contribution to fashion has never been stronger. We were delighted to advise on the Royal Mail series of stamps to celebrate many of our most influential designers."

The full set is available on the Royal Mail website for £6.
