A STAMP ON FASHION: Britain’s Royal Mail is celebrating 10 of Britain’s most renowned designers and their best-known creations in a new collection of first-class stamps. The lineup of postage stamps features images shot by photographer Sølve Sundsbø of silhouettes of models posing in designs by creatives including Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Ossie Clark and Jean Muir. The creations showcased include Westwood’s tartan mini Harlequin dress from 1993, McQueen’s Black Raven dress from the late designer’s fall 2009 Horn of Plenty show and a Tommy Nutter jacket once worn by Ringo Starr. The stamps went on sale Tuesday.
