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