Stella McCartney was born and raised in London and the English countryside. She 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.
A lifelong vegetarian, Stella McCartney does not use any leather or fur in her designs. Her collections include women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, lingerie, eyewear, fragrance and kids.
Stella McCartney now operates 33 freestanding stores. Her collections are now distributed in over 70 countries through 600 wholesale accounts including specialty shops, and department stores, as well as shipping to 100 countries online.
Stella McCartney’s commitment to sustainability is evident through-out all her collections and is part of the brand’s ethos to being a responsible, honest, and modern company.
