It’s a big year for Britain! Not only are they hosting the 2012 summer olympics, the country is also celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee (60 years of reign)… and they’ve been named the fashion capital of the world.

Perfect timing to launch a special stamp collection celebrating 60 years in fashion! The 10 stamps feature iconic creations from 10 designers that represent British fashion at its best. Like Vivienne Westwood’s Harlequin dress, an 80’s Zandra Rhodes gold ball gown and, my favourite, Alexander McQueen’s breathtaking Black Raven dress.





What I really find interesting (other than the fashion of course!) is how Norwegian photographer Solve Sundsbo chose to portray the designs, with invisible models. It gives great movement to the clothes, without taking away the focus from them, which would have been difficult with real models.

The stamps were launched a couple of days ago and are available on the British Royal Mail website.

Thanks to my friend Gibran Ramos, who lives in London and bought them for me, I will receive mine in a few days!!!

So what do you think of this initiative?

Lolitta a décidé qu'elle allait devenir journaliste de mode à 14 ans (en regardant Jeanne Beker à Fashion Television) et elle a tout fait en son pouvoir pour que ce rêve se réalise. Ce qu'elle ne savait pas c'est que cette passion allait la conduire à fonder son blogue! À travers FashionIsEverywhere, Lolitta espère prouver que la mode est partout et qu'elle est accessible à tous, peu importe notre budget ou notre silhouette. Quand elle ne blogue pas, elle adore voyager, manger et passer du temps avec sa famille… et surtout sa petite nièce Mila!
