Stella Mccartney - Stella Mccartney Makes Tennis Dress

Stella McCartney is among a host of celebrities to customise a dress for female tennis stars.

The British sartorialist has joined up with the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) - alongside other designers including Giles Deacon, Dame Vivienne Westwood and Matthew Williamson - to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.

Stacy Allaster, Chairman and CEO of the WTA, said: "WTA's partnership with the British Fashion Council provides our players with a unique opportunity to work with some of London's most talented creative minds.

"Women's tennis has always had a link to the fashion of the time, and we are very pleased to be able to collaborate with the British Fashion Council to share our players' interest in fashion and style with some of the world's best fashion designers."

Caroline Rush, CEO of the British Fashion Council, added the collaboration was a great opportunity to highlight the importance of the link between fashion and sport.

She added: "This project is an ideal opportunity to build relationships between our British designers and some of today's most iconic female athletes. The link between fashion and sport is increasingly important and never more so than at the most famous of the tennis tournaments - Wimbledon."

Other designers taking part in the project include David Koma, Hussein Chalayan and Burberry.

Wimbledon starts next Monday (20.06.11).
