Stella McCartney, graduate of BA Fashion, deserves her Special Recognition Award for Innovation in fashion. Managing her own sustainable viscose forest in Sweden shows extraordinary commitment. We encourage students to consider sustainability, to both planet and people, throughout their course and her stance inspires many to set high standards in their own work.Sarah Gresty, BA Fashion Course Leader
