Royal Mail have released ten new first class stamps showcasing the work of some of Britain’s famous fashion designers from 1945 to the present day, including Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, Ossie Clark and Alexander McQueen.
Photographer Solve Sundsbo is behind the imagery on the stamps. When planning the range, Royal Mail sought the advice of fashion experts from the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Royal Mail said it wanted to pay homage to the fashion industry in Britain, which employs around a million people and contributes some £21billion to the UK economy.
