The designer took the opportunity to show off her label at the special occasion, wearing a custom-tailored navy dress handcrafted in her London atelier. The dress was made from Nativa, a traceable and regenerative Merino wool that prioritizes animal welfare, protects the environment, and supports its farmers and local communities. To complete the look, she paired the dress with satin navy pumps and a clutch bag, both made from vegan materials, including glue. The finishing touch was a custom lace veil, designed by British milliner Emily London.
Stella McCartney has been a well-known name in the sustainable fashion industry since launching her eco-conscious label in 2001. She follows in the footsteps of her mother, Linda McCartney, who was a famous Animal rights activist. Prior to starting her own label, she held the creative director position at Chloé for four years.
The designer has been recognized by the royal family before, receiving an OBE from the late Queen Elizabeth II in 2013. Today, Stella McCartney continues to work hard toward her mission, to bring sustainability to the forefront of the fashion industry. Her brand has become a leader in sustainable fashion and a role model for other designers to follow.
Stella McCartney’s CBE award is a testament to the impact that sustainability and eco-conscious thinking can have in the fashion industry. It’s a proud moment for the British designer and a reminder of the incredible difference that one person can make in the world. As consumers, we have the power to make a change by supporting sustainable fashion brands and making eco-friendly choices. Let’s do our part to make the world a better place for future generations.
