Linda experienced complications and needed a caesarean. While the birth was happening, Paul waited, praying like mad and he came up with a name for his new music group; a vision of an angel with wings and he had thought that it was a nice image. He later discusses the image to Linda while she recovered and Wings became the band's name. Before she was a year old up until 8 years old, Stella accompanied her siblings and parents around the world for Wings' tours. After 1980, Wings broke up and Paul, Linda, and the children settled down with the children attending local public schools. At the age of 15, Stella gained an interest in fashion design, inspired by her mother's style. She worked with Christian Lacroix and learned her own craft at Saville Row, London, England. In 1995, Stella graduated from St. Martin's School of Art in London after displaying her designs at Islington's Business   Design Centre with her parents and James in attendance. Stella was offered to work with Ralph Lauren but instead replaced Karl Lagerfeld as the head designer for Chloe in Paris, France in 1997. In March of 1998, Linda made her last public appearance at Stella's fashion show. Since 1995, Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 1998, at first it looked like she beaten it until the cancer spread to her liver. In April of that year, the McCartney family traveled to Tucson, Arizona for a family holiday. Sadly, Linda died with her family around her. For her next fashion show, Stella dedicated it to her mother. In November of 2000, Stella and Mary attended the opening of Linda McCartney Centre at Royal Liverpool University Hospital where breast cancer is researched and help aide patients with the disease. In 2000, after Paul announced that he was with Heather Mills; reports claimed that Heather and Stella do not get along.

However despite the negative reports, Heather has attended Stella's fashion shows and in June of 2002, Stella attended Paul and Heather's wedding in Ireland. In 2001, Stella left Chloe and developed her own fashion line with Gucci. In 2003, Stella expanded her empire with perfume made by flowers that Linda used to have around the house. Stella also became a fashion store owner, based in London, New York City, and Los Angeles. An animal lover and rights activist, Stella teamed up with Peta and narrated a documentary on animal cruelty and made sure her designs are not made by any animal products. Stella was involved with Nick Milner, Ollie Buckwell, and Lenny Kravitz over the years. In 2000, Stella became serious with Alasdhair Willis, a magazine publisher. In 2002, Alasdhair proposed and Stella accepted. On August 31, 2003, Alasdhair and Stella were married in Scotland with family and friend in attendance. Stella designed her own wedding dress, inspired by Linda's dress when she married Paul in 1969. In early November, Stella and Alasdhair cut their honeymoon short when her half sister, Beatrice, was born. On October 7, 2004, during her 2005 Spring/Summer Fashion Show, Stella announced that she was pregnant with her first child. On February 25, 2005, Stella and Alasdhair welcomed their first child, Miller Alasdhair James Willis, in London, England. Paul and Heather visited the hospital to see the new addition to the family. It has been reported that Stella will not be able to attend her fashion show in Paris, as she will be on maternity leave.
