Stella McCartney, OBE

FASHION DESIGNER

The second child of Beatle Paul and photographer Linda, Stella McCartney and her siblings attended state school as the McCartneys wanted their children to have as normal lives as possible. Stella was interested in clothes design from a young age, designing her first jacket at the age of 13. In 1997, she was appointed creative director of French fashion house Chloe before launching her eponymous label a few years later. Her collections are now distributed in over 50 countries. McCartney has collaborated with the high street retailer H&M and in 2012 she designed the iconic sports kit for Team GB at the London Olympic and Paralympics. In 2013, McCartney was presented with an OBE for her services to fashion.
