Born and raised in London and the English countryside, Stella McCartney graduated from Central St Martins in 1995.
A signature style of sharp tailoring, natural confidence and sexy femininity was immediately apparent in her first collection and after only two collections, in 1997, she was appointed the Creative Director of Chloe in Paris and enjoyed great success during her tenure.
The British designer’s commitment to sustainability is evident throughout all her collections and is part of the brand’s ethos to being a responsible, honest, and modern company.
“Disposability is anathema, conservation and upcycling is love.”
Delightful in their stylistic duality, Stella McCartney’s creations resemble titanic collisions of natural with artificial forces in juxtaposed clashes of spirit and matter; light and dark, high and low, priceless and worthless, wasteful and carrying, haute-couture and fast fashion.
Stella McCartney’s eponymous and timeless compositions are contradicting and conspiring silhouettes of pure sensuality, urban sophistication, and modern ethical motifs of conscious luxury.
Through exquisite blends of purposive and meaningful stylistic messages and irresistibly sharp tailoring, Stella McCartney’s compositions communicate a new world of shape-shifting, mutating, and evolving narratives of contemporary humans.
Using innovative technologies and constant research, Stella McCartney is turning the scars of our ecological catastrophes in luxurious fashion creations.
Through fluid attires of unmatched architectural projections, uniquely designed to reject the seasonal restrictions of the fashion industry, the designer label is carving a new path of collective actions as the authority of positive practices and leader of sustainable fashion conversations.
Borrowing from the past, the british designer blends couture, designs, materials, British heritage and Italian craftmanship blends to create artisanal embroidery and sculptural appliqués of high design.
As the pioneer of cruelty-free fashion movement, Stella’s values incorporates inclusion with significance, reverence, and respect for people, animals, and the planet.
