Stella McCartney was the keynote speaker at the Council of Fashion Designers of America [CFDA] and Vogue’s annual Fashion Fund dinner.  Her advice to the fashion class of 2014, as told by Marshall Heyman of wsj.com [and I share to the EDGE network]:

• Go work in Paris.  “It will serve you very well if you can get there.”

• Study vintage tailoring and dressmaking. “You have to understand the past to build the future.”

• “Dip your toes into various ends of the industry.”

• “Have great respect for your name and the importance it has.”

• “The biggest thing is to be true to yourself.”
