Alexander McQueen set to cover your post…

Today the Royal Mail is releasing a set of stamps that will have the fashion world moving from email to snail mail for the summer as ten iconic British designers are celebrated with their very own first class stamps. Hardy Amies, Norman Hartnell, Granny Takes a Trip, Ossie Clark, Tommy
Nutter, Jean Muir, Zandra Rhodes, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith and
Alexander McQueen are all presented in the new collection celebrating British style. Each stamp features a treasured design from past collections and is shot by fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø.

Philip Parker, Royal Mail Stamps spokesperson, said: “Britain is famous
around the world for the creative vision of its fashion designers, from
the glamour and sophistication of Norman Hartnell, the punk influence
of Vivienne Westwood, through to the world-class designs of Alexander
McQueen.British fashion has grown to become a major national industry. It
employs about a million people and contributes directly some £21 billion
to the UK economy. So it is an honour to be able to pay homage to some
of the designers who made the industry what it is today.” {Royal Mail}
