Apr 27, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
Stella McCartney runs her company like her father, Sir Paul, runs his world tours: Vegetarian. While there were literally thousands of positive words that could have filled that spot, being animal and earth friendly is a cause that the McCartney clan has embraced with a passion as a way of life. For Stella, using organic, non-toxic, animal-free materials is still secondary to designing beautiful clothes; she designs garments that women will love, and chooses fabrics that accomodate the world. Those facets are intertwine to become luxury fashion that sells a clean conscience. See what Stella has to say about it her sustainable mindset.
"First its important for me to say Im not perfect and that for me, it is about the principle. Sustainability is important, recycling is important. I think it is a mind-set: everyone can do really simple things to make a difference, every little bit counts and there is still a long way to go. My first job is to be a fashion designer my first job is to make desirable, luxurious, beautiful clothing and accessories that women want to buy but I will always take the opportunity to use a beautiful organic fabric. I obviously don't use any animal skins or furs in my collections which has a huge impact on the planet. About fifty million animals die for the sake of fashion ever year, which is extremely wasteful and significantly contributes to climate change as farming uses a lot of water, energy and land, devastate forests and pollutes oceans." - Stella McCartney
