Stella McCartney Designs Clothes That Are “Long-Term Commitments”

by , 11/05/14   filed under: Green Designers, Quotes

“When I design, it’s about designing pieces that are stand-out, staple, long-term commitments in your life. They’re made beautifully in the finest places in the world and should be cared for, loved, and handed down to the next generation. So for me, it’s not about ‘wear now, buy now’ or whatever. It’s about buy[ing] whenever you can buy it, whenever works for you, and wear[ing] it forever.”

—British designer Stella McCartney, speaking to Paula Reed, fashion director of online retailer, about why she doesn’t subscribe to “fast fashion”.

    If that’s true, why does McCartney chase trends? Maybe that reflects her beliefs; her clothing designs (which are unaffordable for most of us) say otherwise.
