Q&A with Stella - Stella McCartney

I really wanted to change what I saw out there. Sports clothing for women, in particular sports performance, was such an ill addressed subject. The colours were very basic and there wasn’t much variation in design. I saw this as a real opportunity to put it right by offering women something they could work out in and still feel good about the way they look. Also, on the technical side, I find it really exciting to work with cutting edge sports performance technology and offering it to women. How is designing sportswear different from designing ready-to-wear? There are many differences. Where do you get your inspiration from?

Clean by Design, Apparel Manufacturing and Pollution

In addition to threatening the health of local communities in these countries, this resulting pollution can also affect our own health and environment because so many pollutants -- such carbon dioxide, soot (particulate matter), pesticides, and more -- travel great distances and enter our own air, drinking water, and food supply. Clean by Design is an innovative program to use the buying power of multinational corporations as a lever to reduce the environmental impacts of their suppliers abroad. Clean by Design focuses on improving process efficiency to reduce waste and emissions and improve the environment. Manufacturing practices in less-developed countries are generally less efficient than in the developed world. Peta.
