Stella Mccartney Nervous About Designing For Men
Stella Mccartney was nervous about designing for men for Team GB's Olympics kit.
Stella has been tasked with creating the Adidas sportswear for the British team for the London 2012 Olympics and the womenswear designer admitted she worried about how to create a strong, masculine look for the male athletes.
She told the Britain's Independent newspaper: ''It's the first time I've really designed for men and I've been really cautious of keeping them feeling masculine; feeling strong; feeling like they're really representing the nation.''
Stella was also determined to make sure the female athletes didn't feel left out and she wanted to incorporate ''feminine elements'' into the kit.
She added: ''In the history of these events, it's all been very masculine and the girls have been slightly overlooked in the design process. They get the exact same strip as the guys and it's been important to me to bring in the feminine elements.
''This is not about me. This is about the athletes and Team GB. I didn't want to put a big fashion statement on it.''
