McCartney’s Olympic Designs

Designer Stella McCartney will be creative director for the Great Britain Olympic Team.

Designer Stella McCartney was named the creative director for the entire British Olympic team for the 2012 summer Olympics in London. McCartney will be designing not only everything the athletes wear, but the fan merchandise clothing as well. 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.
