Dee Izmail, a renowned fashion designer, celebrates a remarkable milestone as her iconic designs are showcased in the Royal Mail stamp collection commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Spice Girls, one of the world's most

successful pop groups.


The Spice Girls, with over 100 million records sold worldwide and nine UK number-one singles, have left an indelible mark on music history. To honour their extraordinary journey, Royal Mail has dedicated a set of 10 special stamps to celebrate their iconic performances across three decades of pure pop brilliance. This marks the first time Royal Mail has dedicated an entire stamp issue to a female music group.


Among the standout images featured in the stamp collection are Mel B's snow leopard velour catsuit and boots from the 1997 BRIT Awards and Emma Bunton's Navy

and Purple Disco Spot Open Back Mini Dresses worn during the Spice Girls' concert in Istanbul in 1997.

These stamps capture defining moments of the Spice Girls' career and showcase Dee Izmail's contributions to their iconic image. Reflecting on her collaboration with the Spice Girls and recognizing her designs on the Royal Mail stamps, Dee Izmail expressed her gratitude and excitement, stating, "It is a tremendous honour to see the Girls and my designs featured in the Royal Mail stamp collection commemorating the Spice Girls' extraordinary journey. Working with the Spice Girls was an unforgettable experience, and I am proud to have contributed to their iconic image."


Dee Izmail's association with the Spice Girls goes beyond the stamps. Over the years, she has created numerous iconic designs including:


• Posh Spice's PVC catsuits, including the silver one worn in the "Who Do You Think

You Are?" music video and the black one worn in the "Say You'll Be There" video.

• Victoria Beckham's chainmail top and silver skirt worn in the Spice Girls' Pepsi ad.

• Geri Halliwell's red pleather playsuit and Hollywood Babes crop top and skirt cord, which raised £4,500 for Children in Need.

• Emma Bunton's pistachio green suede dress worn to meet Prince Harry in 1997. 


In addition to her contributions to pop culture, Dee Izmail is deeply committed to philanthropy. In 1993, her daughter was diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease, a life-threatening heart disease affecting young children. Fuelled by her personal experience, Dee founded Kawasaki Disease UK to raise awareness and support families affected by this illness. Dee's dedication to raising awareness of Kawasaki Disease is further reflected in her recent creations. In October 2023, she unveiled the Dagger Dress, a poignant symbol of the pain and suffering endured by Kawasaki Disease patients. This dress, part of her Dark Side collection, aims to raise awareness of this little-known yet dangerous illness.


Looking ahead, Dee Izmail is preparing to launch her latest masterpiece, the Chandelier Dress, in April/May 2024. The Chandelier Dress is designed to bring light and positivity to new research about Kawasaki Disease, further amplifying the mission of Kawasaki Disease UK.
