Pret a poster! How for­mer Royal Mail em­ployee has put her stamp on fash­ion

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - Comment - By Mark Con­nor

AS a for­mer postie, she walked for miles ev­ery day and han­dled count­less let­ters and parcels.

But as well as mak­ing de­liv­er­ies, Chloe White was also gather­ing in­spi­ra­tion. The 34-year-old mother of four has cre­ated her own postal-themed fash­ion range, based on what she calls the ‘ro­man­tic and nos­tal­gic’ as­pects of work­ing for the Royal Mail.

Her de­signs in­clude dresses and skirts dec­o­rated with the post boxes, en­velopes, let­ters and front doors which she en­coun­tered daily in her for­mer role.

Af­ter sev­eral years mak­ing de­liv­er­ies, she de­cided to take a ca­reer break to pur­sue her dream of be­com­ing a fash­ion de­signer and from her home in Falkirk she launched her fash­ion la­bel

Although the de­signs were in­spired by Royal Mail there are no copy­right is­sues. Miss White said: ‘I spoke to Royal Mail and they even of­fered to help with mar­ket­ing.’
