The stamp collection, issued by Isle of Man Post Office, celebrates the 20-year career of Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi – the Manx-born design duo behind Preen by Thornton Bregazzi.

The initiative aims to celebrate their upbringing on the Isle of Man and promote a sense of national pride, recognising that growing up on an island within a small community can afford opportunities that cannot be found in larger towns.

The stamps will feature the brand’s red Finella dress that was famously worn by the Duchess of Cambridge to a reception in Canada in 2016, as well as the citrus power dress worn once by Amy Winehouse and Gwyneth Paltrow and which became Preen's most popular dress of all time.

A quilted floral dress from the most recent AW17 collection is also depicted, alongside a pink velvet hitch dress from the AW16 collection, the massively successful stripe Flintoff dress, and a pink silk wrap dress from their SS06 collection.

Over the course of the years, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi’s dresses have been worn by an array of high profile women including the Duchess of Cambridge, Diane Kruger, Scarlett Johansson, Cate Blanchett, Carey Mulligan, Beyoncé, Rihanna and Michelle Obama

The stamps are available to pre-order online.
