Childhood and Early Years
Stella Nina McCartney was born in Lambeth, London, England, on September 13, 1971. She is currently 49 years old. Linda Louise McCartney, an American singer, photographer, and animal rights activist, is her mother, and her father, Sir Paul McCartney, an English musician and former Beatle is her father. She also has a sister named Mary, a brother named James, and two half-sisters named Heather and Beatrice.
During their childhood, the McCartney siblings travelled the world with their musician parents and their band Wings. Almost the entire McCartney family has been vegetarian for their entire lives. As a result, her vegetarian upbringing was evident in her art. Linda, her mother, died in 1998 after a long battle with breast cancer.
Despite their celebrity, her parents wanted her and her siblings to attend local East Sussex state schools. Bexhill College was one of the schools. She also went to Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design and Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication. At the age of 16, she interned at Christian Lacroix and polished her cutting abilities at Edward Sexton. In general, Stella concentrated her education on pursuing a career as a fashion designer.
At the age of 13, Stella McCartney designed her first jacket, which launched her career as a fashion designer. In the early 1990s, she received her design education at Ravensbourne College and Central Saint Martins. She does not use leather or fur in her business because she is a lifetime vegetarian. She is an outspoken supporter of animal rights and a member of PETA, an animal protection organization. Similarly, she has owned a fashion label under her own name since 2001, in conjunction with Kering. However, the business partners split up in April 2018 when she chose to buy the fashion empire and take over the reins.
In November 2016, she debuted her first menswear collection, which was inspired by her father. In addition to fashion creation, McCartney debuted her perfume in 2003 and a skincare line called CARE in January 2007. The Stella McCartney Cares Foundation was founded by her. It’s a non-profit organization dedicated to breast cancer, the disease that claimed her mother’s life.
