Stella McCartney, daughter of Beatles frontman, Paul McCarney, has been making quite the name for herself with her eco-friendly fashion designs. The fuel behind her take on eco-fashion is an organic farm in Sussex. She and her family immersed themselves in farm life, raising and looking after animals. “I was raised to see that we are all here on this planet Earth together,” she said.
Stella launched her career in 1995. She designed a few eco-friendly pieces in college, which were adorned and modeled by her supermodel friends Kate Moss and Noami Campbell at her graduation. As a long-life vegetarian, her “no animal” policy means she doesn’t use any leather, fur or feathers in her designs.
In 2004, Stella released a joint-venture label with Adidas and established a strong partnership with the famed show brand. Since then, her collaboration with Adidas has become more sustainable with every season. If you consider how many pairs of kicks athletes go through, this was an excellent place to start with eco-safe shoes.
Stella strongly believes that this project with Adidas will have a significant impact on the planet, all they’d have to do is concentrate on the numbers. Not only are these designs animal and planet-friendly, but they also look chic and fresh. We can’t see why anyone wouldn’t want to wear them!
The Rumors Were True
If you thought the Adidas collaboration was cool, then get ready to be amazed. Taylor Swift and Stella released a collaborative line of eco-friendly accessories and ready-to-wear designs to mark the debut of Taylor’s album, ‘Lover.’ If you listen carefully to Taylor’s new songs, you will hear her mentioning Stella’s name. Pretty cool, right?
If you haven’t seen their products, as we all know Taylor Swift, their collection involves those stylish jackets, tops, and bags. Of course, their fashion line was held up to Stella’s standards-meaning their products are entirely fur-free and leather-free. Let’s hope these ladies can raise more eco-awareness.
The Small Things Matter
Stella McCartney should be very proud of her achievements in the aid of animals and the environment. She has set high, admirable standards. We can only hope that the other luxurious fashion labels will follow in her footsteps.
Stella provides scholarships at Central Saint Martin College to students who cohere to the ethical charter. She hopes to encourage young designers in the fashion industry. We hope that all of Stella’s hard work will have a significant impact, not only in the fashion industry but also in the housing industry.
