Stella McCartney (born Sept. 13, 1971), the middle child among ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney's (born June 18, 1942) three children with his first wife, photographer Linda Louise Eastman (Sept. 24, 1941 – April 17, 1998), has taken the fashion world by storm ever since her graduation in 1995 from London's Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
Famous for exquisite tailoring and feminine styling, Stella officially incorporated children into her design repertoire with the launching of her first children's wear collection for Gap Kids in October 2009. In November 2010 Stella launched her own children's clothing line, Stella McCartney Kids, targeting newborns and children up to age 12. A lifelong vegetarian, Stella refuses to design with furs.
Instead, Stella frequently favors 100 percent natural fibers, such as cotton or silk. Stella's dressy and party dresses for girls enchant with their expert tailoring and feminine flair. Stella's girls' dresses of 100 percent cotton especially show the creativity and quality that natural fibers contribute to special dresses.
These classic dresses qualify as living heirlooms, to be worn with joy as well as care, and to be passed on to younger siblings, to nieces, to grandchildren.
