Stella McCartney was born in London to a family of legendary creators but made a name for herself as one of the world’s leading fashion designers. Early on, she was recognized for sharp tailoring, bold aesthetics, and masculine energy in womenswear and found success as the Creative Director of Chloe. However, she is primarily known for her eponymous luxury fashion house, which launched in 2001.
As an animal rights activist and lifelong vegetarian, McCartney established the brand with designs free of leather or feathers – a revolutionary stance, then and now. The brand has continued to grow with a commitment to being ethical and modern — constantly innovating new ways to become more sustainable, including partnerships with brands like B&B Italia. From design to store practices and product manufacturing, the fashion house emboldens confident femininity with elevated yet effortless, conscious fashion.
