One of the leading female designers of the fashion industry today, Stella McCartney successfully tailored her take on modern style of femininity into a powerhouse global brand.
So, what is it about Stella McCartney that made her the most influential person in the sustainable fashion of today? To start with, she has an uncompromising stance on always using materials that are cruelty-free, recycled, and 100% organic. There is a combination of innovative processes that need to be followed so that the range of sustainable materials such as regenerated cashmere, forest friendly fibres, and recycled polyester van be used safely when making all the products. So, when you add all of that to her distinctive British quirkiness, floaty fabrics, and sharp tailoring, you have a brand that's as positive for the earth as well as your wardrobe.
When Stella McCartney is designing something for her eponymous label, the British fashion designer always keeps the needs of women at the forefront of her mind, with a sophisticated femininity, natural confidence, and of course her commitment to sustainability. The diverse femininity of Stella McCartney's collections caters to capsule styling for all occasions, while showcasing bold prints, with abstract tailoring, and sweeping silhouettes for a clothing range that's always styled for modern life.
Stella McCartney was born in London and raised in the English countryside, graduating from the iconic Central St Martins school of design in 1995. Her natural confidence, femininity, along with her signature sharp tailoring style was self-evident throughout both of her first 2 collections, because she went on to accept the position of Creative Director at Chloe Paris in 1997.
While she certainly enjoyed some great success during her tenure there, Stella went on to launch her own fashion label only a few years later, showing her first collection at Paris Fashion Week in 2001. Because she is a lifelong vegetarian, Stella McCartney made the decision very early on to use alternatives to leather or fur in all her designs.
Stella's first perfume was named "Stella” and launched in 2003, and the following year saw her begin her long-term partnership with adidas in 2004. The Stella McCartney / adidas sports performance collection received critical acclaim which has since expanded to also include several other athletic disciplines such as running, yoga, gym, swimming, tennis, cycling, and winter sports.
Introduced in 2010 was the Falabella handbag, distinguished by the braided chain detail, which went on to become one of her best-selling items. The first Kids collection also debuted that year, capturing the energy and spirit of today's boys and girls, from newborns up to 14 years old. Then in the following year, the Stella McCartney range of sunglasses were launched, which also adapted Stella's eco-friendly ethos, which was eventually expanded to include ranges of optical lenses and sunnies for kids.
Then in 2012, adidas appointed Stella McCartney to be the Creative Director for Team GB at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. It was also the first time ever in Olympic Games history that a country's team apparel was designed by a leading fashion designer for all competitions.
Another big year was in 2016, when Stella launched her POP fragrance especially for a new generation of bold and irreverent women who always live in the moment. Then she unveiled her first full collection of swimwear during summer, with naturally feminine, confident, and modern designs with no compromise on fit or functionality. The same year, Stella was also appointed as Team GB's Creative Director once again for the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games.
Most recently though, Stella debuted her first ever collection menswear under her eponymous brand label.
