Being the child of one of the biggest music superstars of all time can have its pros and its cons, with one of the biggest difficulties being getting out of that huge shadow cast by their parent, trying to make a name for themselves in their own right. Some of these children really do struggle to find their own career path, while there are others who have flourished and enjoyed a hugely successful career of their own.
Paul McCartney has been a huge global superstar for decades now, so it was never going to be easy for Stella McCartney to make her own name in the world of fashion, but she has become one of the biggest names in the business. Stella recent signed a deal with ISa Spa, to design swimwear and lingerie for them, with the superstar designer admitting that she has always had a personal obsession about designing lingerie.
McCartney was speaking with WWD, when she said to them, "Lingerie has been a personal obsession of mine for a long time and I have always been inspired by it. While for swimwear I want to encourage women to feel confident and comfortable about themselves and in what they are wearing."
She then went on to add, "This is an important new chapter for us at Stella McCartney and I feel that we have found the perfect partner for us, who really understands our brand and will bring together quality, ability and a high level of commitment to take us to this next chapter."
There are not many designers who are in the same league as Stella McCartney and we hope she continues doing what she does best for many more years to come.
