Called the “Earth Mother of High Fashion” by Vogue, Stella McCartney champions sustainability and ethical practices.

Join F@B’s conversation with the woman called the “Earth Mother of High Fashion” by Vogue. As one of the fashion industry’s most renowned designers as well as vocal champions of environmental issues, Stella McCartney’s company is a highly successful example of the commercial potential of sustainable, ethically minded businesses. Sustainability not only shapes the company’s every policy but also its underlying business model and brand message. Stella was the first fashion designer ever to appear on the cover of American Vogue in January 2020, was knighted by Queen Elizabeth, and famously designed Meghan Markle’s glamorous wedding reception dress. In this chat, we explore Stella’s extraordinary journey as a designer, what and who inspires her, and her thoughts on the future of the fashion industry.
