The American fashion designer is a lifelong vegetarian and doesn’t use any leather or fur in her designs.
McCartney is a PETA supporter and some of her designs even showcase text that says is suitable for vegetarians.

Her company now has 17 freestanding stores all over the world, including including Manhattan’s Soho, London’s Mayfair, LA’s West Hollywood, Paris’ Palais Royal, Barcelona’s Passeig de Gracia and Milan. It recently opened doors in Rome, Miami and Houston.
Now distributed in over 50 countries, through 600 wholesale accounts, she added to her collection a perfume, Stella, and a skincare line, CARE.
