Interview With Fashion Designer Stella McCartney at San Francisco Neiman Marcus Spring Event
Fab Blab: Stella Votes Color For Spring

We heart Stella. This was unanimous at the end of her charming night in San Francisco. It's not every day a designer heavyweight makes her way to the foggy city (why is that?). Neiman Marcus hosted a carnival-themed bash in honor of the designer where fun was in every crevice. A balloon animal-making clown, caricature artist, popcorn, pool, and foosball kept guests amused, while a popup shop with Spring and Fall Stella pieces kept peeps shopping. A nice British touch: Pimm's! We stole Stella away to ask her some Spring-inspired questions. After complimenting one of us on our "lovely warm hand," we discovered that Stella hearts Spring just as much as we do.

Congratulations on being awarded by the National Resources Defense Council of America.

"Oh, thank you!"

Spring is in the air. What do you think from your collection, or in general, is the freshest thing a woman should have for Spring right now?

"I would say a good color. Something to take everyone out of Winter. Wake everyone up. A little flash of color. We have some really beautiful coral dresses and things. And also a whimsical print."

We love your Spring collections in particular. Do you prefer warm-weather dressing?

"I like all the seasons for different reasons but Spring I like, I'm a big fan of Spring, in general. Just in life, it's a hopeful time. You're stepping into Summer, which is lovely."

I think Stella is a lovely girl and she puts her money where her mouth is and really tries to make a difference (eg with animal products), but I have yet to see a single item of clothing she's designed that I would wear or would want to wear.
