McCartney will be the first fashion designer ever to hold this position and will work in collaboration with Adidas. In reaction to the position, McCartney was quoted saying it is “an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” McCartney is hailed for her staunch refusal to use any animal products in her clothing designs, unlike many high-end designers today.
