When she created her label in 2001, Stella McCartney asserted her commitment to responsible, ethical and sustainable fashion, and associated the label with the same personal values that she brings to work and partnerships in her studio – values that inform her whole approach to life. The inspiring environment has been constructed by Faye Toogood’s London studio, using environmentally friendly materials, processes and techniques, as well as elements of traditional craftsmanship.
Stella McCartney invites visitors to wander slowly through this space and to experience, observe, feel and be part of a gradual awakening of the senses. Sanctuary of Stillness is an invitation to a beautiful sensory experience.
To delve deeper into this exploration, Stella McCartney has invited American filmmaker David Lynch to give the first French screening of his Foundation’s latest film. It is an initiatory journey, a kind of testimony to the power of meditation over the creative process, there at the very heart of the Sanctuary.
