Issue Information

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi was founded in 1996 by fashion designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi. The designers, who met whilst studying the art foundation course at the Isle of Man College, are two of the Isle of Man's most talented and successful individuals who have built a phenomenal career in the fashion industry. Their debut collection at London Fashion Week for Spring Summer 2001 was met with rave reviews and established the brand's essence of "punkish sensibilities with vintage elements and hand crafted details".

Preen has evolved from a small boutique in London's Notting Hill to a leader in the fashion world, collating a legion of loyal, famous faces to flaunt their collections along the way. These include Beyoncé, Scarlett Johansson, and Michelle Obama to name but a few.

This unique collaboration is a stand out range from the Isle of Man Post Office, utilising Preen's famed use of colour which is inspired by the raw beauty of the Island where they were raised. The stamps are bold, striking and spectacular and a must have for anyone who appreciates fashion and design or is looking for something original for their stamp collections .

A vibrant set of 6 stamps showcasing Preen by Thornton and Bregazzi’s most iconic dresses from their twenty year career in the fashion industry.

The images for these stamps were commissioned exclusively for this collection. The model is situated in a box to give the impression that she is inside the stamp. The pictures were shot with a soft focus so that the final images appear almost feel painted. The choice of a red haired model was inspired by Thea's Bregazzi's trademark hair.
