Now the British designer is set to show for the first time at London Fashion Week as she celebrates her 10th year in the business. Stella will present the spring summer 2008 Adidas by Stella McCartney collection on September 20, the last day of London Fashion Week. But there won't be a runway show, it has been billed as a "special event."

"Adidas by Stella McCartney will add a designer sportswear dimension to London Fashion Week. It is a great collection to close what will be an exciting and busy week," said the British Fashion Council's chief executive, Hilary Riva.
