Letter-writing is definitely in fashion – iconic dresses designed by Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and worn by A-list celebrities such as Duchess of Cambridge, Amy Winehouse and Gwyneth Paltrow are being featured on a set of Isle of Man stamps.
These chic stamps depict landmark designs from the 20-year career of two of the Isle of Man's most talented and successful individuals, fashion designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi.
The Manx-born pair, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Isle of Man Newspapers Awards for Excellence 2017, are the principals of global fashion house Preen, which has grown to become a globally loved brand stocked across five continents and an industry insider favourite.
Depicted on the stamps are Preen by Thornton Bregazzi's most popular designs:
The red Finella dress that was famously worn by the Duchess of Cambridge
The citrus power dress that Amy Winehouse and Gwyneth Paltrow wore and became Preen's most popular dress of all time
The quilted florals from their most recent Autumn/Winter 2017 collection which was greeted by rave reviews
The pink velvet hitch dress from their Autumn/Winter 2016 collection which personified the season
The stripe Flintoff dress that was on the cover of British Vogue magazine and a massively successful dress
The pink silk wrap dress from their ground breaking Spring/Summer 2006 collection
Apart from the stamps which are launched on the 1st of February 2018 to coincide with London Fashion Week, fans of Preen can also purchase all six stamps in mint condition presented in a classic black frame, which is a stunning collectable item.
