The Great British (Fashion) Stamp

Hello loves! I have no idea where the weekend went, but it went far too quickly for my liking. As many of you know I spent the past few days in the UK celebrating an old BFF's wedding and seeing friends & family. Talk about the ultimate weekened ever! I had such a blast even though it was a whirlwind of a visit and I can't wait to share some snippets with you.

There are plenty of celebrations as we kick off with Cannes Film Festival tomorrow and early next month, Queen Liz' Diamond Jubilee, it's going to be absolutely huge!
However, most recently I stumbled across the 'Great British Fashion Stamp set' by Royal Mail, featuring 10 Famous and most loved British Designers iconic designs. The designs as featured on faceless models as below, go back as far as the Second World War and was photographed by one of my all time fave fashion photographers, Sølve Sundsbø.  These are on sale from today in the UK stamp collectors! They've even got a framed stamp collector's edition for sale here!
 Ossie Clark print by Celia Birtwell giving a nod to the Swinging 60's.
 Black Raven from Alexander McQueen's The Horn of Plenty collection
 Jean Muir's famous Harlequin dress from the 1980's.
 A classic blue suit by Paul Smith, who first broke into fashion in the 1970's

Royal Mail are also issuing these commemorative stamps in honour of the Queen's Jubilee, I can't believe it's been 60's years since her accession to the throne. 

What stylish ways to push the envelope?! Any favourites here?
