In celebration of 60 years of great British fashion, photographer Sølve Sundsbø has teamed up with the Royal Mail to bring us a special book of stamps, featuring some truly iconic British designers.

Instead of Her Majesty the Queen in the top right hand corner of our letters, you should be prepared to start seeing the iconic works of Vivienne Westwood, or for something a bit more sombre, a piece by Alexander McQueen. Other designers that have been included within the book are Zandra Rhodes, Paul Smith and Ossie Clark, but to name a few.

The Great British Fashion stamps are available from the Royal Mail branches or their online e-bay store  http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Royal-Mail-Stamp-Collection

For a preview of the stamps see below.
