Our Very Own Fashionista!

Michael Starkey And Mirella

Michael Starkey And Mirella

Designer of our Christmas 2012 stamps, Michael Starkey dropped in to see us today and revealed that he has branched out into fashion by designing a ‘Summerfruits’ fabric.

The original design was produced on board, digitally scanned and transferred to cotton print. Two dresses were then made by a lovely lady called Barbara.
One of the dresses has been auctioned for charity. Michael is hoping to interest designers or retailers in taking the fabric design into production.

The almost-unique dress is modelled by our very own IOM Stamps in-house model Mirella!
