Company

Born and raised in London and the English countryside, Stella McCartney graduated from Central St Martins in 1995. A signature style of sharp tailoring, natural confidence and sensual femininity was immediately apparent in the first collection and has become a signature of her eponymous fashion house. Stella McCartney launched her fashion label in a partnership with Kering as a 50/50 joint venture and presented her first collection in Paris in October 2001.

A lifelong vegetarian, Stella McCartney does not use any leather or fur in her designs and is committed to operating a business and maintaining a supply chain that respects the planet as well as its inhabitants. As a brand we believe that sustainability can take the form of beautiful, modern clothing and accessories. Core collections include women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, lingerie, eyewear, fragrance and kids.

The brand now operates 51 freestanding stores in locations including Manhattan, London, LA, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Shanghai and Beijing. Our collections are now distributed in over 77 countries through 600+ wholesale accounts in key cities worldwide, as well as shipping to over 100 countries online.
