Preen by Thornton Bregazzi – Manx by Design


Isle of Man – The Isle of Man Post Office is honoured to unveil this set of six stamps charting Preen by Thornton Bregazzi’s twenty years in the fashion industry through their most iconic dress designs. This collection features six sensational images, commissioned exclusively for these eye catching stamps, capturing the beauty and elegance of Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi’s work perfectly. Each of the stamps is dedicated to one of their most iconic pieces including the Red Finella Dress as worn by the Duchess of Cambridge during the 2016 Royal Tour of Canada, their Stripe Flintoff Dress which graced the cover of Vogue and their most popular dress, the Citrus Power Dress as worn by Amy Winehouse and Gwyneth Paltrow. The Quilted Florals Dress from Preen’s Autumn-Winter 2017 collection is featured, along with their Pink Velvet Hitch Dress from their Autumn-Winter 2016 collection which personified the season.

The collection pertinently coincides with Manx educated Thornton and Bregazzi’s Lifetime Achievement Award which was presented to them at the Isle of Man Newspapers’ Awards for Excellence in November 2017. 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”.
