"These stories are simply not true" confirmed her rep yesterday. Stella is a lifelong vegetarian and has never used animal products in any of her designs, famously shunning leather in her eponimous accessories collection as well as in her designs for 'adiddas by stella macartney' - where Stella prides herself on having sourced alternative high performance fabrics. All of Stella's collections are, "100% cruelty free" say her press office, and they go on, "by using such innovative materials, Stella McCartney proves that the use of leather is not necessary to achieve the same performance results and offers the best alternative for the consumer to decide." Bravo Ms Macartney and thank you!
