You're not in Kansas anymore…

Stella McCartney

From the glorious extravaganza of Christian Lacroix last week to one of his former interns  this week – I bring you English designer Stella McCartney (1971 – ).

McCartney first became interested in designing clothes when she made a jacket at age 13. At 16 she interned for the wonderful Mr. Lacroix, before studying at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.

For her graduation runway show in 1995 she used friends such as Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss as models. From 1997 – 2001 she was creative director of Chloé. From Chloé she went on to Gucci, and also to launch her own fashion house, in 2001.

McCartney is a fervent supporter of PETA, and does therefore obviously not use fur and leather in her designs.

Love, Hanna
