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.

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.
