lick this: stamps celebrate 60 years of british fashion

Waking up to these incredible images of some of our favorite UK designers - we simply had to share the love.

From The Style Examiner :

 London-based graphic designers Johnson Banks have worked with fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø to produce a range of 10 stamps that portray 60 years of British fashion. 

Live models (as opposed to static fashion mannequins) were used to embody the silhouettes of the various fashion eras and fit perfectly into the surviving existing garments. Following the shoot, the features of the models and the background were erased from the images in order to focus the viewer’s gaze upon each of the British fashion designs.

 The stamps feature the work produced by fashion designers in the 1940s (Hardy Amies), 1950s (Norman Hartnell), 1960s (from the boutique Granny Takes a Trip and designers Ossie Clark and Tommy Nutter), 1970s (Jean Muir), 1980s (Zandra Rhodes), 1990s (Vivienne Westwood), and the first decade of the twenty-first century (Alexander McQueen and Paul Smith).

Enjoy. And if any of our British readers obtain some of these beauties then send us a post card!
