New Stamps Honor England's Influential Fashion Houses

by Georgia Bobley · May 16, 2012

Between the Royal Wedding, the Queen's Jubilee, and the upcoming Olympics, it's been a big year for Great Britain. With so much international focus on the country, English fashion has been thrown into the spotlight -- and now it's being displayed on stamps.

Britain's Royal Mail has launched a line of stamps honoring England's top 10 fashion houses, including Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, and Paul Smith.

The stamps, which were designed by London-based graphic designer Johnson Banks and shot by Solve Sundsbo, were created by photographing live models wearing the designers' clothing and later removing the models from the image.
