Stella McCartney honoured for environmental influence at Fashion Awards

Stella McCartney

The Fashion Awards 2017, taking place in London tonight, will see Stella McCartney OBE receive a Special Recognition Award for Innovation for her work to raise awareness of environmental issues – as well as her incredible designs.

The Stella McCartney brand has never used leather, fur, skins or feathers in its designs and works to become more environmentally responsible with solid ethical values, says the British Fashion Council.

Tonight's awards will also include the Swarovski Award for Positive Change, which 'recognises and celebrates brands or individuals who promote the welfare of others and generously use their resources to benefit good causes'.
