Life, health, happiness, yoga, style, travel, sunshine and endless possibilities…
Earlier this week I was invited to watch Stella McCartney discuss her Spring 2014 collection with British Vogue Contributing Editor, Christa D’Souza, at Harvey Nichols.
The setting was perfect, the interview took place at Season at the Fifth Floor Restaurant, the room was full of dusky flowers and each guest received a beautiful little goody bag upon arrival.
In person, Stella was very pretty and dainty, and came across as incredibly personable and funny. She spoke about her inspirations, her creative family and how her designs have evolved over the years. She shared her perspective on the new collection and her views on women and their relationship with clothes.
Stella emphasised that she is drawn to designing clothes that women can wear; clothes which are both beautiful and practical. She loves including pockets in her designs and is influenced by Savile Row tailoring: “I’m not my own muse but I wear my own clothes. I’m providing a service, I’m not the kind of designer who perhaps thinks they above who they dress”
Her Spring 2014 collection is full of florals, hearts and pinks, which she explains is because Spring is a wonderful time to be in love. The shift dresses are perfect for both day and night, and the accessories are all designed to add sparkle and character to any outfit. An added bonus is that all of Stella’s pieces are ethically made, so you don’t have to compromise your style to be a little kinder.
With Winter fast approaching, I think it’s going to be Spring sooner than I think…
Quote of the night:
“When a woman comes into a room, she should be noticed for the right reasons, not the wrong reasons.”
