The collection, aptly named ‘Made with love’ went on sale today, and consists of 17 fashion-forward pieces for the modern bride – think tailored Stella McCartney blazer suits and elegant dresses.
Stella told Harper’s Bazaar, ‘When I designed this collection I took some of the classic Stella McCartney pieces and re-looked at them and re-energised them with the spirit that is now in the future of wedding; the modern bride’s approach to her dress. I wanted to design pieces that would be comfortable and special and have such an emotional attachment, but wouldn’t really make you feel like you weren’t yourself.’
Not only are the designs special, but they are special, and have been made so they can fit any woman of any age, an ethos close to Stella’s heart – and of course, they are all sustainable.
Of being picked to design the gown for Meghan Markle, Stella previously said, ‘I think Meghan chose me for reasons other than just a beautiful dress — plenty of people can do that. She is not a difficult client to make look beautiful. Amal called me and asked me to do it, as did Oprah. I look at that Amal dress, and it is made of sustainable viscose that took us three years to develop.’
